    Pros

    C This is revenue generating organisation. Do not expect IT service based strategies. No concept of resource pool.
    Atmosphere is positive and growth oriented.
    Technical growth and opportunity depends upon project.
    Technologies- Java, Springboot, Ruby, Python, Scala etc
    Lot of work in data science
    ompensation is better that service industry but lesser than banks still it is good.
    Good increment for technical people

    Cons

    Policies are good but can be improved on medical insurance. Hierarchy. Space. Parking and formal wear😉

    Advice to Management

    Should be given some opportunity to grow internal technical pool

    Too much into cost cutting. Especially even after year on year growing revenues.. senior management don't care about employees
