    work environment is not professional... too much of favoritism and office politics

    AML Executive (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    Prosonly transport...
    clean environment.
    good parking area.

    Consyou have to lick the boots of your manager here...
    by mistake if you are on PIP due to some personal reasons..people will look you down as if you are not worth of anything..they will play with your self-esteem..HR people will least bother about you..
    they harass you by keeping you on PIP for almost 8 months..its really emotional and psychological harassment...

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not look down on people who works under you guys,,,they are not your servants..
