    Pros

    1. Good pay+bonus+fancy stuffs if you are manager or higher.
    2. Laptops, headphones, and all accessories like pen, notepad, Gym, Stapler, Courier Covers, tea, snacks are provided
    3. Shuttle and cab facilities are helpful
    4. Ok if you are a fresher or have low experience like 1 or 2 yrs

    Cons

    1.Stale projects and arrogant management
    2.Developer got to report to 5+ TLs, and 3+ managers at the same time.
    3.Even a simple leave requests will result in escalation if you don't get approval from all of your leads and managers.
    4.Work life balance will be laughed at and terribly screwed.
    5.Will squeeze the juice out of you and will be fired silently and immediately if your managers don't like you. 6.Wonderful politics because of downsizing and cost cuts.
    7.rare/no onsite opportunities
    8.Employee suicide rates are high and have witnessed news being curbed from leaking out to media by management.
    9.Disdainful culture.
    10. Employees will be valued based on their pay scale. The less the pay, the more desirable the profile. Anybody with 10+years of exp and 15+lakhs of package - US Management screws them first and pushes them out of the system immediately. Have witnessed 2 such occurances
    11. Employees loyalty will be laughed at. Definitely not the place to stick around if you are getting older

    Advice to Management

    Well, Gaints are too tall. Cant shout enough to be audible enough for their ears. And ......They just wont listen. Who cares Lol rofl
