      Pros

      - You are responsible for your own work and nobody will poke you all day around. Nobody will stop you taking breaks as far as the work isn't affected. - Unlike other companies, you are appreciated by your peers, managers & customers for any good work you do. - The culture here is purely as an actual Product Based company in other Developed country. I am saying this because I have worked in another Indian Product based company, but the work environment there was just like an MNC or a Services Based Company. - Great allowances over the salary compared to any other companies I have worked with. - All the CTC components are fixed, so you get a good in-hand salary. And a quarterly bonus on top of it. - Very cool office space, pantries & cafeterias. Free snacks & beverages 24x7. - We also have a gaming & sports area which we can use anytime of the day.

      Cons

      - The only small drawback I can mention is a the Official CTC/Salary Package. They do not officially provide a good CTC or hike when they hire. But the in-hand salary is really huge compared to it. For example, I was hired at exactly the same CTC as my previous employer, but my in-hand is at least 1.5 times than what I was getting there. This includes the Shift Allowances, Holiday/Weekend work allowances, and quarterly paid extra bonus.
