      Pros

      Good working atmosphere, friendly management, and supervisors, great work life balance, projects are of short periods and have quick turn around time.

      Cons

      There is no process of leveling up the salaries according to industry standards. Review process is quite strange.

      Pros

      1.Work life balance to some extent 2.Can get decent salary if you are good with words 3.No need for talent to grow, just have to suck up to your boss. 4.All the technicolour benefits.

      Cons

      1. Undeserving and inexperienced heads and management people, the site is being run by extremely inexperienced staff, people have been promoted multiple positions higher than their former position to fill up the vacancy despite of their lack of technical know how. 2. All the other Mill sites dump all their discarded work here. 3. QC standards are pretty low. 4.You need to be in the good books of the department heads or be friends with them to go up the ladder. 5.HR don't do their bit either they are hardly seen in their cabin. 6.You need to speak English at all time, your talent doesn't matter, you will be penalized if you don't speak English. 7.Good people quit and will continue to quit if the leaders and department heads are not replaced with worthy ones and shown the door. 8. They show good quality work in their monthlies, demonstration of work done that respective month however you will rarely find any work done in Bangalore in that meetup. 9.So don't fall for the Bangalore showreel a lot of it is not even done by Bangalore employees.
