      Pros

      Staff facilities are excellent with a large restaurant serving breakfasts and lunches with many choices of fare. Location is okay if you enjoy expensive shopping centres.

      Cons

      The management are inconsiderate of staff needs and expect you to spill every drop of blood during working hours and beyond to get a job done, regardless of the cost to the individual.

      Take the good with the bad

      Pros

      So many things I liked about this company. Yes, the hours are long but employees have many perks. Felt pampered even as a contract employee. Caring leadership, friendly staff and many ally groups, diverse staff, many volunteer opportunities, remote work days, access to great professional development courses and speaker events, beautiful offices, well-stocked kitchens (free milk, coffee, tea. coco, etc.)

      Cons

      Overall, a well-run company. Still, I was surprised by how inefficiently they ran things in my section and the outdated systems used by our team. Lack of investment in newer systems. Being cheap can cost you precious time, and we all know time is money. Other than that, the usual cons: no overtime for insane work hours; minimal initial training, insecure mid-level manager who will throw the lowest ranking people under the bus to save face for their own ineptness. The bad apples are in every company.

      Culture is too bad

      Pros

      - brand value - competitive joining salary ( but depends on your negotiation skills as well)

      Cons

      - culture is too bad - the work is so bad that once you are stuck it takes forever for preparing for interviews outside - long working hours like 12 - 16 hours - if you join as developer, your life will suck as you are whole and soul responsible for everything, specially for the blame game if anything goes wrong. - internal mobility takes forever
