    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours.
    No Formal Dress Code.
    Not too much managerial roles ( good for some, bad for some).
    Package is either at par or more than the market.

    Cons

    People here do not have foresight.
    Most of the people here do not have the necessary exposure of the IT industry. Even Very Senior Managers here never worked anywhere else and they do not have any idea about how things work elsewhere.
    The only aspiration you can have here is to "code" . Everything else they do not understand.
    Do not join if you want to move up the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    It takes years to build a reputation but a day to ruin it. Work on what you have built. Try to understand your resources, their strength, weaknesses. Do not encourage a loser attitude in the team for your peace of mind. One day you'll be a loser too.
