      Pros

      - Some people are decent enough to work with. - Lots of freebies are provided with the hope that employees stick around. - In-house gym for employees. - Since employee turnover is high, employment opportunities exist 365/ 366 days a year. - They'll remain in business for they know how to keep everyone in their pockets.

      Cons

      - Diversity without inclusion. Immigrants are hired only as symbols of tokenism. - You get hired based on your skills but they force you to work on something they want. - Individual career aspirations are never considered. - Work-life balance doesn't exist. Employees are treated as donkeys for a donkey never questions what's loaded on its back. - Working from home is considered unproductive. - Salary hikes are pathetic.
