These differs from project to project: -No pressure on freshers -No fixed timing, you just have to be online for about 6-7 hours minimum out of 10 hours (incl. lunch break) -Some of the managers are kind

Dislikes

-There is no specific HR whom you can approach to complain or talk to if needed, they have removed the talent manager name for all employees below manager level so you will be left calling everyone left and right. -Recently updated their notice period, so nobody knows who to approach in case you want to have a conversation about the notice period. -Managers don't want to deal with employees who are leaving. -Even if you are in a project, you may end up doing nothing the entire day for months on end just because you are a fresher. -Some managers are rude and downright not helpful in any way. -They do not allow you to shorten notice period even if you do nothing all day for months and offer buyout. -HRs are non-existent for people below manager level ...Read More

All is well if you don't want to learn or pursue career or you want to do nothing for days on end, this may be a perfect opportunity for you. If you are on notice or if you want to pursue a peaceful but hardworking career this may not be for you.

They give you a lot of learning opportunities. Like full stack, free certification, udemy access.

Dislikes

If you are on bench nobody would contact you for months and if you got a project it won't match the skill you got trained in (mostly support roles). Second point is they mentioned bonus in your offer letter but won't provide until 1 year completion. Also hike is very low.

Peers of the same role are friendly and share the knowledge they have. Managers are friendly-type

Waiting in the bench is hard especially for freshers. Sometimes the waiting period can be high. So until then try learning as many technologies as possible to keep updated
