    EZIRS is not a company but a shop

    Pros

    Good brand name in international market.

    Cons

    Boring, repetitive work, not interested in growth of individual and pay scales are ridiculously low. The leadership of EZIRS is pathetic as people with no or very less management education or experience are leading the key positions. And its more painful to see how a so called human capital consulting firm is not able to manage its own human capital. The sole objective of the promoters is to earn money and not build good company with some future vision. I don't see EZIRS existing anymore in next five years as the inflationary pressure increases leading to the increase in salary demand of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate work and don't show favoritism and nepotism. There should be a transparent way to accessing the performance of the employees.

    Pros

    Its like Goverment job, come to office just work and go back to home.

    Cons

    But dont dream about growth, no salary hike for those who are not favourite of managers, false promise in interview and within 2-3 you will start looking another job, worst paymaster in executive search. jsut check old employee on linkedin and ask them if any one has ever reffered any friend to this place. No one dare to reffer any friend to this hell.
    Senior are here for more then 2-3 years rest are dont want to complete just one year.
    Manager from this company can spoil any companies good environment because they just like to play politics and COO Gitanjali might have had good exp in research but as a leader she is partial, always avalaible to talk to girls but cross growth line of boys as it is the policy of parent company EZI, you wont find any male staff in offices at delhi, mumbai and bangalore except consultants.

    worst exp. of life for those who have worked here since 2007, HR department behave like a deaf in exit interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its a chellenge to find more 2-3 ex. employees satisfied with EZIRS (Egon Zehnder Information And Research Services), current one are looking for another job
