Pros

Can not think of one reason to like this company

Cons

Jeff Bezos should pack in one of his "Fulfillment Centers" for about a month undercover to see just how bad the company is. Company does not care about employee retention. Turnover is at 55 %. Does that sound good to you?

Advice to Management

Start treating your people as people NOT machines, If you want machines BUILD THEM.

    Pros

    You're CTC might appear as a good number (read the offer doc carefully, even the employer PF goes from your CTC)
    Number of stocks (mostly you'll get it after 3 years - depends upon the employee)
    Lot of technical challenges (which is good for learning)
    Employees don't speak English, they'll speak in some programming languages :)

    Cons

    As someone mentioned, Employees are "Resources". Management will look at you as a "price tag".
    Facilities are too frugal and I feel most of the employees became "miser" after joining here.
    They'll say its "Cheap and Best" but most of the time its just "Cheaper". You've to ask for everything (even simple stationaries) and fight for hike.
    No free transport (around 4k per month in India).
    Never expect work-life balance (might have seen this in other reviews).
    Can't do any higher studies in correspondence even with your own money (due to some stupid policy).
    And at last, never expect any perks (apart from tea/coffee and employee medical insurance).

    This company will change the way, you look at the money you may miss the other part of your life after joining!

    Why I'm still here? Just to get a brand name in my resume!

    Advice to Management

    You look so cheaper!! Just reduce the "frugality" bar!!
    Don't be cheap just to add a point in your performance review!!
    Arrange some team building activities (like team-outing, team-lunch). When I look at my colleagues I can think only about "object, class, abstract etc"... nothing else!!
