    I worked in Chennai division. work wise or salary wise very bad The Chennai tasks are supervised by Mumbai division which in turn is supervised by major sites in London or Vancouver.

    Pros

    Some good projects and some talented people

    Cons

    Highers ups don't care about culture or people. They keep hiring People partners who are totally useless and do not bring about any change. People are treated like cattle and squeezed out until there is no life left in them Overtime is encouraged and people look down on you if you leave the office before 8pm People keep having breakdowns and nobody does anything about it During a recent restructure, a lot of talented people were let go of because they were lower down yet Heads of Department (a number of them are steady Eddys who don't pull their weight and leech on other people's work) are ok and are allowed to keep their big salaries The company keep taking people on, telling them they will be working on certain movies and then moving them to other projects with no explanation There is a lot of politics
