We can filter arrays, objects by multiple values by using underscore
Useful to filter array values, large objects, using only matching values of a particular field

in this example, the code filters only managers from the employees object
list of names are used to filters.

      
      var employees = [
         {
           id: 1,
           name: 'Kumar',
           designation:'Manager'
         },
         {
           id: 2,
           name: 'Mani',
           designation:'Engineer'
         },
         {
           id: 3,
           name: 'Akash',
           designation:'Manager'
         },
         {
         	id:4,
          name: 'Sruthi',
           designation:'Tester'
         }
      ];
      
      var managerNames =[ 'Kumar','Akash' ];
    
    var Managers = _.filter(employees, function(i) {
        return this.keys.indexOf(i.name) > -1;
    }, { "keys": managerNames });

console.log(Managers);
