    Great Parent org with poor policies and procedures at ISC

    Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsOverall the org offers opportunities until band 6... fairly straightforward work where an average person should be able to do work and be successful.
    Senior management has built a listening organization... which is good.

    ConsMost benefits are for leadership team. LT can get away from anything very easily. Managers would pick and choose the feedback and manipulate them to their advantage.
    Travel policies are not in line with global benchmarks. Parent company shows interest to get work done, but doesn't bother much about the day to day nuances and execution... they are usually impressed well by the leadership team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease have consistency in reviews and processes across organization at India.

    Lack of transparency in recruitment process - employee referral and internal job postings donot work.

    Process Associate (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsGreat office space, good free food and cabs. Many job openings.

    ConsUnprofesssional greedy Recruitment team in Gurgaon, give preference to resume sent by recruitment consultants. They manage typing test and aptitude test by wrong scoring.
     IJP always predecided, they work with manager and directors to promote only a selective few employees.For rest the give gyan on policies and experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook into the recruitment process and most importantly recruiters integrity. Major compliance problem.

    Good work-life balance

    Testing Specialist (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsLot many............. provides opportunities for internal job postings as per your skills and interests, good work life balance and head of Asia Service Center is rare leader, is very employee friendly and strive for best social working hours, employees' work life balance. Lots of learning/training opportunities.

    ConsTransport dep and IT Infra support are biggest pain here. HR doesn't work much to match market standards in terms of salary. You will be awarded only if you are potential attrition or supervisor's pet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't try to make and implement highest level policies but need to improve ground level organizational policies.

    Good place to work if your experience is between 2-5 years

    Analyst (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsLots of programs to learn thing other than your core job.
    Management is fine to an extent.
    Can negotiate good salary.
    Couple of allowances like Food/Internet/Phone that you are entitled for free.

    ConsTransport policy sucks.
    Managements folks tend to get things done from junior folks a lot and they relax.
    Not a good place if you want to learn new things. Boring jobs and nothing to learn practically.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be overwhelmed with Managers, keep them on their toes. These people are getting hefty paychecks without doing a dime.
    Improve your policies and don't change them often.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
