    Too much of politics. only some peoples want everything. No Visibility, top management does not give damn about you.

    Pros

    one can be assigned with multiple tasks so you can learn a lot as a fresher.
    Multiple technologies have been used on various projects.
    Complicated applications, so a lot to play around applications and data integration.

    Cons

    Poor senior management.
    Less appreciation of hard work.
    Yearly appraisal is not fare.
    Increment is not based on yearly rating.
    No timely promotions. Management waits for yearly Performance review for this task.
    No promotion bonus as well.
    No facility of free food for late stays.
    Poor facilities in terms of food and parking.
    No yearly bonus.
    No tax free reimbursement income.
    No Free cab for odd hours shifts.
    No free shuttle for metro stations.
    Too much internal movement within the teams regardless of skill sets.
    No proper work allocation. Juniors to work a lot and TL/ Managers can enjoy with few excel sheets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yearly appraisal should be fair enough and transparent.
    Need to think on below points:
    Free food and cab for late stays.
    Promotion Bonus.
    Extra benefits for weekend work.
    Timely and fare appreciation for hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure job security and win good long term accounts. Work towards building existing Accounts.

    Sale teams inability has become an open secret and turning out to be fatal to company's growth.

    Hopefully this is being addressed, else it will affect the nervous system of the organisation.
