    Pros

    Work environment is good, very good people around, best for the freshers and those who are interested in curricular activity.

    Cons

    I saw a very biased managers , promotions based on how well you please management than your performance .Growth is too bad , no work life balance even though they say there is work life balance .

    May be good place for some and may not be for others, people will be punished for voicing the concern

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explore the talent within the team , motivate everyone equally.
