      Pros

      - You get to do real technical work.

      Cons

      - Expected to OT in certain departments. - Annual pay increment is less than 5%. - Promotion increment is less than 5%. - Recent pay adjustment for market competitiveness was a maximum of 6% for fresh hires. For comparison, SE’s adjustment was more than 20%. - Expected to prepare for demos every few months. - Scholars get additional allowance, regardless of the work done. Imagine being a non-scholar who performs well but getting paid less than a lousy scholar.
