What is the feeling of job security at Das Writing Services?

Pros

Good colleagues, Training is good for freshers.

Cons

The organization appears as a "place to work" for newbies. Sooner, one will start to discover the facts. During my service, I've observed several aspects of the organization both advantageous as well as demoralising for an employee willing to prosper. 1) Too many eyes over your head. 2) Salary issues. 3) Hidden terms and conditions. 4) No job security.

Advice to Management

Employees are inferior at job designation, not in real life. And, as an employee has responsibility for the organization, the organization also should consider reciprocating the same. Also, biased management will only decrease productivity. I Hope, these disputes will decrease with time will better management in the future.

4) No job security.

How are senior leaders perceived at Das Writing Services?

Pros

The policy of flexible working hours, although seems convinient at first, rather quickly proves to be a trouble. I don't recommend considering it as a benefit from any stance while you decide on this job. For ametures, just starting with content writing, this can be decent starting point. You can learn a lot here, but also pay a steep price by sacrificing work-life balance. I feel there are better ways to learn content writing. There's a strong official hierarchy here which exposes writers to strong criticism from their seniors. Now, that can be a good or a bad thing depending on the individual's rapport with the colleagues . For me, it proved to be quite demoralizing. I had to deal with abuse and disrespect as I wasn't able to establish that sort of casual rapport. A very predictable mode of operation exists in terms of work load distribution and challenges. You are required to deliver a set number of articles for a fixed number of clients everyday.

Cons

1. Have to write 3000 words of content daily, without fail. In case you can't write that much, no consideration, not even for a single day. Contrary to the JD they hand out, salary is NOT fixed. the most unreasonable salary policy - for every word deficit, you loose the equivalent money. Your word count is monitored monthly, where you have to maintain the total target. Technically, it is a TARGET BASED job. 2. Toxic environment and work culture. The entire process of quality control and editing here is carried out over a very loose framework. It is haphazard and very draining on the associates. You can easily get penalized unfairly over unreasonable grounds. Unprofessionalism runs rampant on all levels. 3. You'll be forced to write more and more. No room to explore and grow because all your focus will be to generate quantity. 4. They won't furnish you a relieving letter or an experience certificate, not voluntarily. The CEO is so ignorant that he was confounded when I said his acceptance mail in response to my resignation isn't sufficient. I had to convince him that a relieving letter is necessary to get employed somewhere else. To sum it up, other content writing agencies in Kolkata offer better opportunities for growth and overall job satisfaction. Go for those if you can.

Advice to Management

Diversify the industry reach. Finance and automobile service aren't the only sectors with content need. Curb abusive and entitled behavior by seniors so that associates don't have to put up with disrespect. Cultivate Professionalism in the work space. Inculcate respect for work-life boundaries.

Are employees at Das Writing Services generally happy and/or satisfied?

Pros

I worked for 8 months left due to personal issue. I must say that the training I got here on first 3 months was really good. I got to learn about basic seo and digital marketing. Pubali di helped me a lot. I worked for few top rated MNCs content project here. Writing here is completely different. I got to know how a content rank on google first page and this is really interesting. Here everyone focus on learning new ideas and implementing those to improve quality. I worked as freelancer for 2 years earlier, but here I learned about Yoast plugin, word density and unique content. At the starting it was not interesting, but from the 2nd month I was introduced to live projects. I liked the occasional cooking at kitchen with free food and health drinks available for all.

Cons

Sometimes it is hectic to take the work pressure. Editors delay in putting the word count. Lack of proper policy, no one knows who to approach for any particular reason. No leave available for 6 months. Salary always after 7th.

Advice to Management

Try not to make every writer digital marketing specialist. Writers are creative people, not engineers.
