    Pros

    It is really good place to work with good focus on work life balance , yet with competitive salary and perks . Office in knutsford is really good with lots of amenties within campus .

    Cons

    Once you are in , growth is not much and it leaves pay gap among new hire and existing long standing employees . Company should look to reward loyalaty . As with many other large org , may not suite if you want to do lots of innovations on your own and if you don't like breaucracy .
