    Pros

    City Locations & Brand Name. Nothing else can be added here.

    Cons

    No work culture. Employees are not treated like humans when there is work pressure. Employees are expected to be available 24*7 & that too with laptop. Even if u are in the washroom, u are expected to be with your laptop. Top management especially corporate is senseless. Urgent decisions take months & their implementation can take years. U never know what will be urgent. If u are in regional office, then even a peon from Corporate can take u to the cleaners just because he is in Corporate.
    No humanitarian values & you can be asked to work even from death bed. One of the worst cultures sadly driven by the top management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat regional office employees like humans & not like machines. Remember, even machines need shutdown & maintenance.
