      Pros

      Apart from the location in Mumbai - BKC, there are hardly any benefits

      Cons

      • No work-life balance. Work for 10-11 hours everyday and then work after you're home as well • No clarity in job role - doesn't match what is part of the job description. It's mostly editing bios and profiles of experts on boarded and more of that • The training module and process is rushed. There is nobody who will help you with your queries, while being trained nor after been given projects of your own. And if then you make mistakes, it's just hour long futile meetings with your manager and playing the blame game • Read it in another review of being termed as a Glorified Call Centre - Totally agree to that • No scope of learning

      Great Company to Work For

      Pros

      It’s a great company and offers good work life balance and plenty of opportunities for growth and learning. It has an open work culture so seniors are quite approachable and are always willing to listen to and address employee concerns. Interaction with clients (if in client facing role) and very senior professionals across industries ensures that the job doesn’t get monotonous and you are up to date with what is happening in the industry. There is a lot of focus on learning, flexible working, women empowerment etc. which adds to a positive future outlook of the company. If you join the firm as a fresher there is a lot of learning about various industries involved which helps in building a lot of sector knowledge.

      Cons

      Growth at senior level is currently limited.

      India Compliance - Missing Leadership and Misplaced Priorities

      Sep 22, 2018 - Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Good work life balance. You almost never have to carry work home or work beyond six, except days when there are global CEO talks which are interesting. -Great colleagues. Most are out of college with an average age of about 22 which make them have a fresh perspective at work. There is a sense of teamwork in the team and the employees help each other -Good senior global leadership. Work gives a lot of visibility to the seniors in US even though it might be repetitive. -Office is at a prime location and is very easy to commute.

      Cons

      -Severe lack of leadership: The Gurugram leadership is either absent from everything or irrelevant. They come and go as they please. Take leaves as they please. In the six hours (yes, they don't even work eight hours) that they spend in office, no one has a clue what they do between the dozens of cigarette breaks they take. There is virtually no communication with them even though they sit in the same office space. -Leadership is grandfathered in and have little to zero knowledge of compliance. They spend their time worrying about the step in and step out times of junior colleagues and the duration of their meal breaks. No conversations on work is ever done. - No vision, mission or purpose is ever communicated by the local management and all we hear is from the top global leadership through global talks. Individuals are hired to work on a single activity without definitive career plans drawn out for them. If they excel too much, the management gets insecure and tries to demotivate them. -This team and the office, work in a silo and unlike other global offices, global management doesn't visit the office. The local management takes advantage of this and runs it like a family business. Acquaintances and friends with zero track record are hired into the team and made to look like prodigies even though in their previous teams (where they spent a significant time), they were under performers. - Information, no matter how simple is withheld from the junior employees as a means to keep control. "Decisions" and those activities with visibility in front of the global management is only made by the "core team" of incompetent friends and acquaintances hiding inside meeting rooms. These acquaintances and "friends" have no training or idea about compliance but are elevated above those working on the same activity for over 2 years with an agenda to make them appear like they are indispensable to business. -Once employees complete a few years and the local management is clueless about their career trajectory, they are harassed by unnecessary emails about step-in and productivity so they leave while the "acquaintances" go about doing nothing all day under the watchful eyes of the management. Some employees have been lucky to escape this cycle.
