    Pros

    If you end up with a good manager, you can work from home at times, changing accounts and building a diverse skill set is a strong possibility.

    Cons

    On an a average the work doesn't get very technical and slows learning.
    Since HR policies are really weak, you dont have a foot to stand on when discussing issues with the management.
    The work life balance isnt too great for most people. If you are a hard working you'll really have to shrug off the weight that will be placed on you and scrounge for any appreciation whatsoever.
    Management makes lots of promises and comes up with odd, on the spur policies to keep from fulfilling those promises.

    Advice to Management

    get an hr policy in place and stick to it for one and all. not just your relatives and brown nosers. Please research if you are in a position to make the promises you are making before you make them.

    Pros

    Great and talented colleagues to work with

    Cons

    Unreasonable workload requests - prolonged working hours at night and in weekends; work-life balance is a joke.
    Incompetent management: assiged tasks were only useful to his own career goal rather than meaningful to the company or employee development.
    Constant layoffs.
    Lower pay, terrible benefits, and the company does not respect its employees.
    Short-sighted upper management.

    Advice to Management

    There is basically no cure to this rotten management system...
