      Pros

      Benefit: Insurance and Travel is perfect. WFH is great

      Cons

      India HUB has a lot of bad engineering practices (these are below maintained by Expert level). Expert level has 10+y experiences but lack of practical practices. * Throw RuntimeException * Use 500 status for user context * Bad Database design: Index, Data modeling * Lack of foundation: software design, system design, UnitTest. They have no idea how to write UnitTest. HotFix on production without UnitTest. They implement a lot of Java system without having Interface design. * Abusing Microservices: no idea how to maintain the communication among microservices. lack of design in caching. * Security compromise: saving JWT token in PubSub for calling a non-user-context microservice McKinsey engineer are almost not world-class engineer, I believe!
