    Pros

    Challenging environment to work. So you build up nerve for unorganised environment.

    Cons

    1. Systems are not in good shape. There are a lot of systems to learn before u learn process.
    2. Application are out of date. DB is still using SSR.
    3. Extra pressure on people managers as there are no team leaders. Managers r expected to do TL plus Manager job.
    4. Lot of politics.
    5. Performance evaluation is not transparent.
    6. Human resources department is not efficient at all.
    7. IT dept doesn't know what to do with most of the applications plus they work at a snail's speed to resolve any iT issues.
    8. Getting application for my staff was big headache. It used to take 2 to 3 months for an employee to get full access to required applications. Massive pain area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It became circus when I was there. Estalished a team then they expected huge amount of cross training then they wanted staff saves then location move. All at once with no time to breath.
    Technological updates are required. People should be focusing on process improvement rather than technology problems.
    Need to make HR and IT dept efficient to help ur people work.

    Pros

    Office Culture is OK .Nothing too exciting . This organisation in India is run by Operations Head with least or minimum participation from IT Leaders

    Cons

    Development Centre for Promotion is eye washer . Mostly people from Operations and IGT get promoted . Global CIO is preaching to be technology focussed but fact is in the current restructuring IGT and Operations Leaders assigned responsibilities to run Technology organisation as CIO's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove DC immediately its only doing more loss than anything else . Please have right technology Leaders hired to run technology centres if you really want to get benefits of Insourcing . Worry is current process will only make technology week further and same IGT leaders will say previous structure was better and there will not be any results achieved

    management should work to turn around the current upside down pyramid management structure
