    Cons

    Not good for laterals,
    No good compensation as compared to other companies..only few bugs for over time work
    No value of laterals.
    14-15 hours per day work even office time is 9 to 6
    HR management listen to only higher mgmt...No value for employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should respect to there employee also.
    Should follow give & take...as It takes two to tango...
    Higher Mgmt should support there employee....they are not for use & through
    Onsite team should be supported by there higher mgmt when needed.
    Managers should listen there employee & understand there problem.
