      Pros

      - Interesting problems to solve - good work life balance - Good people to work with. - Some team members are very smart. _- Good to start career here

      Cons

      -Extremely poor work distribution(Lead Data Science doing work of a junior data scientist) - Hikes are minimal(Good hike only for people in terms with the management). Negotiate a very high salary when you join. -Importance given to "foreign" degrees and Phd, though the productivity by Phds in the team has been 0. -Senior management involved in politics and showing poor projects as working great -Hiring one of poorest you just need to impress one guy rest of the interviews even if you don't know anything you will be hired. - Top leadership interested in improving their own brand value to get the next job. No contribution to the company.

      Pros

      - Lots of opportunities to learn new things - Flexible in working hours. Completely depends upon the reporting manager. - Entire work environment is fabulous - Bhavesh can be easily reachable to anyone and can respond to our queries and concerns. - The WFH option is officially not available but based on the emergency you can get it with your managers agreement.

      Cons

      - Sometimes meetings may come even on weekends - We are developing a futuristic product and if we are owning the credit for the development we should definitely contribute a bit of responsibility and time too.
