    Please make sure your recruit enough people to implement project rather than overloading the junior folks and over paying the bossess to sit on their shoulder and scratch their head frequently.

    The work never stops. There is always something rolling.

    Cons

    If work is all that you care about then nothing like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are humans. Don't push them too hard till they burnt out or breakdown or have a messed up twisted family life.
    Projects need to be planned in a practical way. There should be a threshold set and try not pushing beyond it which could mess up personnel life of the employee and also steep fall in the quality.
