    Pros

    Good salary, but better negotiate before joining.
    Work from home facility.

    Cons

    All processes are very lengthy and service teams are not professional.
    Does not pay all employees in same level equally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees in same level should be paid equally. It demoralizes employees who get less for the same work and in same designation. There should be normalization process.

    Pros

    Limited Work from home is there. Cab is cheaper.

    Cons

    Hard work, experience, knowledge is not recognized. Experienced people are considered burden.
    Managers bother only about their personal growth they are biased in most of the situations whether it is judging people or providing new opportunities to them.
    Almost no chance of growth and learning.
    HR appears to be just for name sake, they are fully incapable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No use in advising.
