      Pros

      It was a good company. but not anymore.

      Cons

      it WAS a good company. Not anymore. Whatever you see in the glassdoor is not applicable now. - Work life balance is on big toss. - HR policies suck. I mean really suck big time. If you want example of how HR should not behave, they are ideal one for that. - Firing people every now and then not only in manufacturing but also in IT. - Its process driven company. Whatever model they come up with, will be overridden by the middle management and end output will always remain the same.

      Pros

      Good organization and not much of a lay off culture Good pay scale Good name in the industry

      Cons

      1. Legacy working culture- working similar to a local pvt.ltd company, don't expect MNC work culture 2. You are put into project which is way different from your experience or domain understanding and creating in necessary pressure 3. Internal hours billing and utilisation parameters are used to measure employees. So even though they are namesake a product company the working culture is of service based company 4. Don't expect work life balance if you end up in the wrong team
