    I worked at MSLGROUP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Energy among young colleagues. Was a good place to work when I joined.

    Cons

    No mid/senior level leadership because they don't want to hire seniors inorder to cut cost. No learnings. Underpaid and unhappy employees. HR team is a joke! Treat employees like slaves and quite open about it. Toxic leaders in the Bangalore office atleast.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your genuine employees. All your rewardal programs are rigged. Equal pay should not be just a gimmick like how you are doing right now.

    I worked at MSLGROUP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Among the top 3 PR firms in India by revenue, performance is rewarded, the CEO is approachable and values top talent, opportunities for growth and movement to other teams internally is possible, work culture is cordial and work-life balance is okay

    Cons

    Not client-centric, poor quality control so below par work gets delivered to clients, Digital team poorly managed with sub-standard resources, no training provided by the company to upskill employees from traditional PR background in Digital, no salary advance for genuine business-related travel, reimbursements and finance teams operate very slow

    Advice to Management

    Hire only above-average people, build a culture of meritocracy and client-centricity, enable quick promotions for highly deserving talent, do more to retain top talent
