      Great People, but lots of uncertainty

      Pros

      - Very helpful, kind people. - They do take care of employees, especially in the current pandemic situation.

      Cons

      - Air of uncertainty is present. - Things get done very slow initially only to be hastily done at the last moment. Such a culture does not make for solid, constructive, and consistent results. - They’ve tried to do away with sir/ma’am culture, but it definitely still exists and that’s unfortunate. - Terrible gender diversity ratio.

      Branded company with bad manager

      Pros

      Company wise it’s good. Family holding company, rich history.

      Cons

      Management supports only favorites. If you speak against your manager, no promotion even if you create Value to the Organization. You get a 10-12% hike even if you exceed all expectations. If you hold 'Bucket' to your manager, you get a promotion, a 17% hike, a job to your wife, desired shift, fast on role, 5 lakh package and the list goes on. For growth, you need to mirror/echo your manager. One CS ‘manager’ will talk about "Value, Transparency, Motivation, Encouragement" in an open forum, but in reality, if you ask IJP or tried to give him feedback, you will be targeted. That manager will make sure an Employee will get bad supervisor or vice versa etc. Smart way to destroy the opponents.! Dear COE, please see the data, employee consistency and not what you hear from your leadership.
