    Friendly place, most people are nice, the office is well maintained. For those who prefer shift work, there are different timing options. Starting your career here is easy, it's a good start, for the first year or so you can learn new things.

    Cons

    No chance of real upward movement, so you stay in the same place for a long time. No growth. No new learning opportunities.
