    Pros

    The Work environment is terrific. It is one of the best payers in its category and lives up to its name in it.
    The office culture is very professional and the company takes good care of its employees.

    Cons

    The learning curve is not that great. It tends to slack down after time. This limitation specially applies for a manual qa as majority of the work is black box with limited automation exposure.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Manageable pressure, friendly people and lot of opportunity to meet new people

    Cons

    Bonuses and hikes are not good. Even though you have put a lot of effort, it is usually predetermined and there is not enough transparency yet. Although they claim to have a lot of transparency but there isn't much. There has been a lot of cost cutting going around and therefore the company isn't what it use to be. I feel prior to 2012, there it was a really good time to work but things are not going great for now.
