    Pros

    Work life balance. Technical exposure. Unbiased promotion.

    Cons

    Management quality seems to be deteriorating. Employees are being recruited based on less salary and not on quality. Lot of cost cutting lately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit good employees who can do the level of work that is required. Stop recruiting freshers and expect them to do the work of an experienced engineer.
