    A month long agenda will reduce time spent both on and preparing for tem meetings.

    Pros

    1) The production infrastructure is too huge which allows us to learn more about large scale systems.

Company undergoes frequent silent layoffs, which make the employee feel more insecure. 3) Too poor management. Most of the management members don't have proper management skills, which directly affects the individual contributers. 4) Improper project planning. Most of the projects are planned improperly and end up in last minute rush up and increases stress among employees.
