    Advice to Management

    Please try to make internal systems more organised and robust Try to promote young professionals on policy platforms rather than just being event managers Understaffing decreases employee efficiency Please have a cafeteria within premises Also provide health insurance to employees Reduce probation period to 3 months

    Exposure at its best Competitive environment Accountability

    Cons

    Loss of work life balance Loads of summits & seminars Focus is on money making and not on the content. Politics start here. Right utilisation of staff is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Right utilisation of staff is lacking. So need to rightly fit them as per their expertise. Requires focus on quality of program rather than income attached. Sr management are over burdened and hence junior staffs don't get proper direction.

    I worked at Confederation of Indian Industry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

In the general wing you organise events and meetings etc. You can build your network of contacts. Mega Events organised are cash cows and gives easy money to the chamber. In the technical wing there are centres offering consultancy services in quality, environment, energy, green...

    Cons

    Weak HR and systems. No professionals in HR. Opaque operations, salary structures and promotion policies. Generalists (some make money, that too easy money from sponsorships most just spend) rule over technical specialists who make difficult money. Generalists pass on the burden of making bottomlines to technical centres where the heavy top just amplifies the pressures and passes on the lean middle management....

    Advice to Management

    It is OK if you make less profits. Focus on well meaning policy work with Govt. Reach out to staff at all levels and hear them out. Internally, analyse where money and bottom lines are comming from. Act accordingly.
