    Pros

    good functional domain, nothing else

    Cons

    No policies in place,
    management doesn't care about employees or their aspirations,
    they won't rudely as if employees are slave,
    they don't allow to take leave( forget how many you have in balance),
    unrealistic expectations,
    no process in place,
    management licking culture,
    HR doesn't know that they have to listen to employees and help them in their problems but they will take it personally if you take any issue at HR level and that will give you the last option to leave,
    too much micromanaging with sapience irrespective of employee working beyond time limits and getting things delivered,
    no sense of managing a team as clearly discriminate, in terms of benefits (nothing competitive),
    Not really career building opportunity or plans,
    Many people left or leaving as they faced one or other of above issues,
    Finance team also doesn't operate properly as they create new PF unique number number even though you share existing one,
    No external training or assistance in external training,
    Softwares are not upgraded or they don't want to upgrade,
    Again management is pathetic!
    Many more....
    Giving one 🌟 as no star is not an option as this doesn't worth of single 🌟 also

    Advice to Management

    Not worth to give any advice.. you keep screwing talent and company.
