    Pros

    You can learn technology to an extent

    Cons

    * When company is running out of projects, They will ask the employee to take leave ( Forced Leave) If the employee doesn't have leave balance then it will go as LOP * They have a worst Activity Tracker and according to that tracker if you don't have 8 HRS then Management will ask you to apply for leave * Work life balance is terrible * 99.9 % of the time they think profit centric and not about employees

    I worked at Photon Infotech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's nothing positive here. Didn't find anything.

    Cons

    They will make you cry, if you resign. Management will not reimburse if you have PL.So utilize all your leaves before you resign. Bad toilets, bad food, bad management, bad leave policy, bad time management, bad culture. Higher management abuses and yells at their team. No work life balance. All the architects are pet to senior management who have literally zero knowledge. If you are questioning then they will make your life hell. All the HR are postman with zero power. If you don't have any offer then join otherwise no no no..
