    Pros

    Good culture overall. But BU wise it can vary. Total compensation and pay are competitive. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Higher management in few BUs are not good. They are bringing too many old school methods and spoiling life life ban lance of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more towards automation. That will ease out life of employees, bring innovation and also more importantly helps to increase the quality. Being in software company everyone should be writing code be it developer or qe.
