    Pros

    Leave policy is ok
    Pay is just ok , Variable pay is joke. You won't get it most of the time
    Lab facility is good
    Open internet but slow connection
    HR is good, but doesn't have enough courage to deal with management

    Cons

    Very Bad Culture , Master/Slave architecture like mechanical industry
    Management behave like they invented the Gaming machines and technology but they dont know much about it
    No trust on employees .
    Micro management from all of your supervisors. (you will be asked status from your immediate supervisor till the top)
    No job security , anytime you will be fired even if you are a high performer
    Management never admit /accept their mistakes if it happens at their end, always blame people.
    Stupid Indian management , not thinking of any new ideas and plans to improve the products. Instead focus only on cost cutting.
    Unrealistic & unpractical expectations on people
    No proper planning on project schedules
    No work life balance , you will be always spending time on office including week ends
    Partiality is clearly visible , you need to be pet to the top management to get good appraisal ratings and even to keep your job safe.
    Management is publicaly announcing " Recruit people whom you can work with, rather than how the people are talented" , this is one of the example how the management will behave if they dont like you.
    I have seen many talented resources selected in the interview panel , and those are rejected by management simply because they don't like it
    HR clearly knew about everything , they aren't fighting , keeping silent...they want to be on safer side.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the good top management who is good in Technical and in management.
    Focus on how to improve the product scopes and think how to utilize the resources efficiently rather than cost cutting,
    Recognize the people's work , do not be partial , Be professional to employees
    Treat them like humans and be friendly .
    Stop micro management , and trust employees . People are self responsible and they know what need to be done.
    Do well planning , and don't push unrealistic schedules to people.
    WMS is acquired by SG , and this is the time to proof and bring the lot of innovations/good products.
    Bring this sense to employees and see how wonder happens.
