    Great work environment- maybe not the best pay scales initially.

    Transaction Management Group (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsSmall teams- so there's more exposure to different areas and you're given a free reign to go about your work & take initiative wherever you want.

    ConsYou're restricted to the IPC & real estate sector, and the pay isn't the best at the beginning- takes some time to get there!

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore employee activities !

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) New Delhi

    ProsSome remarkable Leaderships in the Mumbai office from 2005 to 2012. And an unmatched Office Services team which set the tone of a culture that promoted zero rivalry translating into an extremely constructive learning and growth oriented environment. A large client base mandated as well as locally generated business.

    ConsA conservative outlook where one is given a comission based on no disclosures ensuring a non-transparency since its inception.
    An extremely disrespectful set of Senior Management in the Headquarter Delhi.
    A philosophy to hire based on limited competencies to ensure a small commission payouts thereby ensuring an insulated system of checks.
    Zero HR function since its inception.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile conducting business with immense finesse may be your forte but a series of dissatisfied employees in a company which once had the prime edge based on an excellent work culture should be concerning.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
