    Good learning experience

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Bangalore

    ProsThe company has a variety of projects and get to learn a lot.

    ConsEven though there are a variety of projects, getting/changing to a project you are interested in is difficult. You have to accept whatever they throw you into or know the right people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the fresh collage graduates a clear picture of what they are getting into. Do not promise them the stars.

    Get rid of the 2 yr bond period. If a n employee is not interested in working there, then let him go. DO not bond him. Company's bottom line would improve and so will the image.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
