    Pros

    Nobody cares how many hours you spend at work as long as you get the work done
    Competitive compensation
    Good products to work on

    Cons

    Growth depends on how good you are in pandering to your bosses
    Management is young and shortsighted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced people at the top
    Ensure your employees are taken care off. Hire more people instead of pressurizing existing employees, and constantly fire fighting

    Pros

    The are not many good reasons to work here.if you stay in the company for to long there may be chances of growth

    Cons

    No work life balance. Employees are expected to work during weekends. Hike is not as per one's effort or performance. Senior management is really poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees well. Give them good raises. It is not a very good idea to make your employees work every weekend.
