    As per company values management is good but must give more importance to resources they have and should put right people in right kind of work and pay, which is needed for growth of any organisation. Satisfaction of employee always gives extraordinary growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring senior level coders for ridiculous amounts and then putting them on bench, instead give that money to the entry level programmers that work really hard and get peanuts to show for it.
