    Pros

    Heavy Package. If they see you important they will raise your salary like anything.

    Cons

    you will be out of the market once you join. They use very old technologies, they dont even think of anything new. They will suck all blood out of you. The worst part they will make you think as a marketing executive to come up with new ideas to increase profit which normally upper management does. the time you enter the office, it will be chat support right from the start, it will be irritating and you cant even think anything new. Atlast you will feel very tired end-of-day, if you turn back and see what you did, there will be nothing.
