    Pros

    Induction training, cross trainings, Skill enhancement trainings. They let you decide if you want to take up a project or not. Proper guidance to get settled into projects. Overall a good company to start off.

    Cons

    Increment is low. Nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have a transparent appraisal system. Those in good terms with managers get decent hikes and those not have to suffer.
