Pros

Salary was great and market related for management positions

I believe it's a good place to work for, no long hours. It just need someone who is a hard worker, who is willing to go and extra mile all the time. However as an employee you need to grow almost all time in your career, it's very tough achieve that within the company.

Pros

Yes

Cons

No

Its all about productvity and numbers.

It is the stressful work place , lacking proper training . The environment is very challenging , benefits are ok. Company expectations is huge with no support structure.
