    I have been working at Etisalat full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Earlier it was good and process was like everyone would love to work for this company. The members of management are so supportive like our AM, TL's each are very supportive.

    Cons

    But as this COVID-19, has started the new protocols are like they want thier KPI's to br maintained without providing sufficient break to the advisors and we put all our efforts to maintain our performance and take company to the top but by putting new updates in the process. It makes the process more difficult. I like we are suffocating. Totally, we are frustated with this process now. We also do not get off on our occasion/festivals and also we do not get the bonus of that beside that we were getting incentives in between but its no more available anymore, atleast provide the holidays on our INDIAN festivals. And even the advisors are coming, provide the bonus of that.
