    Pros

    Its probably the best company for a fresher to start his/her career, the culture is very good, the HR plays a very important role in the company which helps any employee from being treated badly.

    Cons

    The work life balance sucks in most of the process, I personally had worked for nearly 22 hours sometimes. The management decisions are not up to the mark. There are internal politics which sometimes prevents a person from growing in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    The promotion policy is worse, they ask the candidate to apply for a position but the results are not based upon the interview that the candidate goes through, its pre-decided as to who is getting that position.
