      Pros

      Please don’t join this team. No pros about this team. The work environment and managers especially are so hostile and they bully you with full support of directors. Very high attrition rate under this team and the director always protects the interests of the managers and a very bad collusion between them. The analysts always suffer here.

      Cons

      So much internal team politics. They ask you to submit proofs of your medical condition relating mental health and subtle bullying prevalent.

      Pros

      They genuinely care for their employees and their personal growth. They have tie ups with some really reputed universities so in case you are a drop out, they would love you to continue your studies and thats very important in order for you to do well in your career. Even if you don't have a leave balance, for a valid reason like education, health or family emergency, they are always accommodating. The salary does not get deducted at all. Amazing leaders and management so there is so much to learn from them. They are happy to let the youngest person in the team take on a training project as long as you are capable and have the zeal to grow rather than giving it to someone only because of their seniority. Amazing salary + even better incentives. Work life balance, no stress at all. It feels like home.

      Cons

      Choosing the right department or process is very important because there are departments where it is really stressful.
