    Pros

    Growing organisation, Lot of new initiatives, Great opportunities to prove yourself and grow.

    Cons

    A few extremely unqualified individuals in critical roles who dont even understand their role, no contribution whatsoever!! The most important team in any organisation, the one responsible to understand Humans / people (Resources) doesn't understand the core values and intentionally does not value existing employees and even new joinees..

    Advice to Management

    Functional managers sitting outside India , please ... if you know your resources are not capable of doing their job.. help them find one that meets their intellectual capabilities. Please do Not have them at NI and ruin the entire branch.

    Pros

    Good work life balance & benefits

    Cons

    It depends on the team. No growth opportunity if you are in testing domain. There is a thick line between Testing & development. And there is huge salary difference.

    Advice to Management

    Do not separate development & testing depending on qualification. Encourage the people to move to dev role if they are interested & capable.
