It's a great organization to work with. Work culture is good as well as the timing. Learning opportunity is good. Monthly there's a virtual call among the whole team to know if there's any issue/any problems on project during this pandemic. Some Saturdays we have to work, but we get comp off for that. Overall I'm enjoying working here.
