      Pros

      Good insurance policy, good work-life balance and good learning opportunities

      Cons

      1) Company has not declared increments since many years so be ready to float at current salary for many years. No annual increment policy 2) low or no bonus distribution in recent years 3) No leave encashment policy, hence you have to lapse your leaves as management doesn't allow many leaves and at the end leave gets lapsed 4) Too much corporate politics to handle and you should be in good books of your boss else your job security is in danger 5) Seasonal problems similar to oil and gas industry
