    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Darashaw Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Good to learn which large companies may not offer. This company has only one positive.

    Cons

    Exploits people with employment contract. At the time of leaving they unethically ask to sign a non compete clause and threaten action in case we join competitors. They ask for cheques of very large amounts to be given to them all post dated and threaten to encash if someone joins competitor. They think the company should be employees only option to work and employees are their slaves.

    Advice to Management

    Stop threatening employees and respect them which will make them to respect you.


  10. "Excellent for career growth - Financial Services Sector"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mumbai
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mumbai

    I have been working at Darashaw Consultants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training
    Opportunities to take up new responsibilities given
    Leaders are approachable & encourage feedback - provides a medium for resolving queries, concerns, issues etc.
    growth in terms of role and pay hike is splendid - got around 50% hike inspite of being on a contract - it all boils down to your dedication, initiative and Performance.
    Environment is excellent and people are warm and there to help - totally contrary to a typical corporate set up that you would expect
    Got a chance to handle clients with the Leaders early on in the company
    Appreciation and giving due credit for your contribution is another distinguishing feature
    MD takes time out to share his views and takes interest in your career
    Salary is always always credited on time

    Cons

    alternate Saturdays working, there are training sessions and team meetings alright but sometimes it feels unnecessary
    Almost zero employee engagement activities
    Tedious back office processes and systems with respect to filling travel and conveyance etc.
    Office space is cramped

    A word to all: The company will give a big big kicker to your careers and your personalities - no doubt about that.
    But it comes with its own share of process related irritants- if you want cushy jobs with fun and frolic and spoon feeding not the place to be

    Advice to Management

    invest in technology - processes need to be updates
    have more employee engagement activities - not too many but some would definitely help
    You dont need 2/3 working saturdays in a month - please evaluate
    Get a good Office Space - with increasing team size, it is becoming challenging
