      Very worst company.Dont join and lay off yourself.

      Cons

      Upper management is very worst 😥

      Advice to Management

      Upper management would have thought about the employee feature ( very less no of employees are working there) before selling their products to other companies.Many ppl have got stranded and they don't have any clues where to go especially for senior employees 😂
