    Pros

    > Excellent rewards, benefits, Incentives (by the far the best in the industry that I know)
    > Transparent communication across levels but sometimes complex if it comes from different channels.
    > Good managers who are client and market oriented thus making me want to run at all times.
    > Fair in employee practices and HR always thinks for the employees first. They have so many programs, practices all keeping employees in mind. HR is very just, approachable and fair.

    Cons

    Too many training programs at TL level, please add more at the next level so we can benefit.
    We need a good intranet please, the generation loves such platforms.

    Advice to Management

    Lesser meetings more action please.
    Do more Jack like events through the year, it is very motivating.

    Pros

    Timely salary processing
    Multinational company only in name

    Cons

    Immature middle level management
    Non existent internal HR policies
    The management does not understand the meaning of "work-life-balance"
    Worst pay master
    Commission policies are designed in the companies favor and you basically get "peanuts" that too in "installments"

    Advice to Management

    Get a reality check from the front line employees and that too not just from the "survey"

  3. Very Bad place to work. only work if you have no other option

    I have worked for Kelly services for 10 months and deployed to Intel India Technologies Pvt Ltd and Kelly least bother about their employee those who have deployed to client place.... My contract never renewed with client and I have not got any communication from Kelly about my last working days.... However I am permanent employee of Kelly but I have not deployed to other client place and also I should get at least 30 days of notice period, please be noted my contract got renew because Kelly negligence and I have not terminated from client place it was just contract got ended and Kelly suppose to give me other offer to work to different client place or atleast 30 days notice period.
