Salary is OK kind.

Dislikes

WDC gives random promotion, which are not related wot the work done. Employee can threaten and get promotion, can get salary hike. So deserving employees who wants to stay they remain behind while others who can get an outside offer and gets promotion and hike. No Work life balance. Management decisions are random, specifically after Khurram became SVP, he is removing all the people he does not like and promoting his favorite ones. There are many other thongs as well, but these are the ones which are important.

I dint liked anything due to lot of politics

Dislikes

This is one of the worst company where the managers do lot of politics, Good compensation and hike will be given only to the persons who are close to manager. They won’t bother if you give complain also. Managers behave so cheap where you can’t expect in corporate world. You will never grow under this type of people.
