      Pros

      Benefits like transport home drop facilities), free food and pantry.

      Cons

      CTC is lower than the market standard. Contracts team has very school like vibe where your breaks and working hours are monitored stringently (like a BPO). Trusting your employees will go a long way in building trust within the team. Employees don’t like to work in fear and worry of being watched. HR needs to take a note of this as this is not what is being followed in other teams. This is creating resentment among all employees.
