      Pros

      It used to be an awesome company but all is lost now, previously anything was possible in a good way now it's only in bad ways.

After that all they throw peanuts based on some evalution which is fake promises and stupid politics. - No hike to ppl (as msg that we don't need you)  - technical lead are asked to do more firing and political stuff than Technical thing  - technical skill measured by non technical ppl - stupidity in the name of scrum and...
