      Pros

      Being in cloud nine till get your STI and Appraisal documents

      Cons

      Zero(-ve) work life balance. Pay less than what promised on paper(portion of STI is paid). Worst & dirty politics (North Vs South battles). Micromanagement & opaque/randomly changing policies. No raise(Annual Compensation Review) by just mentioning a word "expectations not met". Expectations: work for 14hrs a day and own every problem in the business unit and more importantly pamper your superior
