    Pros

    The only good thing is the brand name.. nothing more than that. Don't waste your time. If you are good st pleasing your manager then please join the company

    No appraisals based on performance. You will be promoted only if you have some serious good terms with your manager..if that works no matter how bad you perform you will be promoted. Donot expect any kind of help from the top management as top management is the level which is most polluted. They care only for profits and employees are of no use to them. No transparency for employee feedback. Even if you are being portrayed...
