    Good salary, poor leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary is good, hikes are decent, pretty good work life balance in the company. People are generally helpful

    ConsCompany branding is negative, integrity of local leadership is questionable. Not much of scope for career advancement in IT. R&D IT team does most of the grunt work - testing etc. The development team is a misnomer since it focusses mainly on support

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Territory Sales Manager

    Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee)

    Prosgood allround field and market experience for a fresher.flexibility to do the job your way,helps in building result orientation attitude.

    Consno extra attention given to skill development of TSMs.no fastrack growth opportunity.leadership programme starts only at the RSM level resulting in many budding TSMs look for better opportunites elsewhere.not everybody can wait for 7-8 years to get promoted to RSM level

    Advice to Senior Managementplease make the entry level TSMs go through rigorous stints across all business domains viz supply chain,marketing,distribution as this will give them a better idea of the business and help them take ownership of it through their current role

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