    Pros

    Salary will be credited on time without any delay.

    Cons

    Dummy HR policies, and HR doesn't have any power to take decisions. Because of this development managers act as dictators in the company. First thing comes in their mouth is to threaten you by saying you will not get this that...I will screw your career. Worst management I have seen so far.

    Advice to Management

    Review the decisions of managers, that what the HR and management are there and paid for. Do not think managers are the one who are doing great, the people who are working for them are in fact great. Company survives because of supporting pillars but not because of good front doors, windows and shelves. good doors, windows and shelves are like higher management and managers.
    Come out off the box and think, if not managers just to achieve their personal goals they will do what ever it takes. Do your job under the umbrella of so called ethics. No ethics then no need to dream anymore.

    Pros

    Nothing great about this company.

    Cons

    People who have zero knowledge in management will be promoted as a manager just because he has decided to quit the organization.
    Senior management who holds the position as Portfolio Manager do a lead job at onsite.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as humans.
