    Executive

    Senior Executive (Former Employee) Mumbai

    Proscareer pathing, big organisation, average growth opportunities

    Consbureaucratic, low compensation, poor & confused leadership.
    always in want of something that they themselves are not clear in their mind.
    The senior management, through their indecisiveness & poor knowledge are taking decisions & actions that are detrimental to the organisation's existence

    Advice to Senior Managementstart educating yourselves with the grass root process, this would save the company from going down the drains.
    stop wasting the company's money on applications like WMS - waste of time & efforts.
    The person responsible for having brought this should be tried legally for malicious attempt to damage the company's resources, reputation & furure prospects

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is good. One advice to the management is that please focus on the training of a new hire. I am saying this personally because I faced a lot of hurdles as no proper training was provided(This happened because there is no such person called as Trainer).
