Salary wise, once you received offer that time you can demand high.. later not much increment or promotion you will get here .. Good policy for maternity leave for female candidates but it's similar to other companies in competition I can say.

Dislikes

Company working hours is 10 and it goes upto 12/14 hours per day plus expectation is to work on weekends without additional benefits or comp offs. Overall no work life balance. Management almost in every project is like they will assign some work and will expect to complete by that day only.. If you can talk and revert to management you can survive well else you will only suffer in such company.. no appreciation even if you are doing so much of work, neither increment not good ratings.. terrible projects, management and company
