    I worked at Packt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexi Shifts, Work from home facility, fixed weekend offs, less work pressure

    Cons

    Layoffs: the company has already done this n August 2019 and again in December 2019. Which means twice in 6months. By this you can figure out how stable your job would be. These people hire in bulk. Later when they can't afford salary or don't get profits very cunningly layoff employees. Many are asked to go on the spot. Just imagine you go home to you loved ones jobless whit no clue of what's next. They don't respect employees suggestions. There is no salary hike here no appraisals, growth opportunities are so slow that you would want to leave, bonus is based on a unrealistic company target which means you won't get it.
