    the money they pay you is good. But beware

    Cons

    - Endless working hours - zero work life balance (the blackberry becomes an extension to your body) - Stress eating at cafeteria and all the free sugar drinks make you hate yourself - Personal vendetta run by higher ups in/outside of india

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change their view that if they pay you the money they have right to your soul and every single minute of your life.
