    Pros

    The quality of work here is very good. I have been always lucky when it came to quality of work. I had joined as a fresher and have faced all kind of challenges and won over then to gain knowledge in every possible way.

    Cons

    Management (read your Manager),is least bothered about the people at lower level. At times they could frustrate you so much that you feel like making an immediate switch. Promotions till AST is still manageable then you cannot grow, since people above you are not ready to leave their positions and would leave you no place to grow. You then just have to move on or be stagnant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop demotivating people by making fake promises when you cant stand by your words.

    Senior management must connect to the employees at all levels for better feedback and guide them for developing career choices in technology, as well as other skill attributes. focus should shift from services to developing and marketing more products/solutions

    Pros

    Employees can better give time to their family, social life is balanced with work. The work environment is flexible enough to breathe and enjoy most of the memorable moments in family. Safety of a human life is the priority concern here, and hence so many campaigns are being run and accomplished.

    Cons

    The basic and foremost negative side of the employment in this company is that the policy of hiring is Salary Conservative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kindly differentiate high-valued Employees from low-performing employees as regard to pay higher salaries.
