    Pros

    Company is good, company take cares of people well.

    Cons

    poor management only with few people in India, They do group politics if you dont aligned with them, they will isolate you and you wont get much hike. they create false allegation related to work and same forward to higher management. If you do right things though they do something to make it wrong and then blame you. No proper ownership everything driven by useless Staff or senior engineer. when I ask some question...
