    Pros

    BNFS is really good and organized. Good learning experience. Since the client is very process oriented same is hence practiced as well.

    Cons

    Most of the Middle/Senior management think of you as a threat if you start asking questions. They need people as work horses. RLT is the hell of all and full of pseudo intellectuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think...why all the talent leaves the company even though you have world class facilities.

    Cons

    lot of politics, senior mgmt is political and does not address issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    senior mgmt should be more fair than biased and see from holistic point of view of entire organisation instead of seeing who will work for longer time and promotions should also be based on talent than who will work for them

    Pros

    Easy access with Hr, friendly nature management. Company offers a good package while joining. If its a specific tool then it will add some plus.

    The company policies keep changing. We never know when we would be suddenly asked to work on a saturday.And the reason is "Due to Emergency deliverables " .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees who are already working in organisation rather waiting for a superstar joining the company.
