      Waste management and HR dept

      Pros

      Nothing to say. Waste management. Useless, Uncultured HR department.

      Cons

      Unprofessional managers, Unprofessional HR. If you want to join you need to sacrifice 20% CTC which will be deducted initially and assure to pay you after 2 years but you will not get. After that another 20% variable pay which will be assured to pay every three months but still that too only dream. Company is depend on client. If they don't have client they will fire employees. Beware before joining.

      Good but boring

      29 May 2021 - Associate, Credit Cards 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - The job is pretty straightforward: You take calls all day ranging from general questions about credit card products to interest inquiries. - Pay is decent, easy job to get for fresh grades. - Paid 6-8 weeks of training, great training environment and resources. - Your happiness level when you join your team is entirely based on how good/bad your manager and assistant manager are. Ask around about a manager before deciding to join their team.

      Cons

      - It gets repetitive FAST. - If you're a quick learner, you'll have the skillset down for this job in a few months and everything from there becomes redundant. - The job has almost no challenge, you can only move up to different departments after a minimum of a year in your current role. - Your performance is entirely based on metrics. If you're not meeting them ,expect the management team to be on you 24/7.

      Pros

      WFH, interesting and variety of work, senior management supportive and also realizing in a pandemic that work and life balance is important. Already during team meetings people recognized for great work and that is important.

      Cons

      I am not sure yet if the work from home will continue once the pandemic is over.
