    I have been working at VFS Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work timings, dynamic business, fast paced growth, plenty of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Name sake appraisal process (management decides the final ratings so why have a system defined).
    Poor work-life balance (varies depending on role and function)
    Haphazard and poorly executed processes (as a result employees at the grass-root levels have to act as per the whims of the management)
    Frequent exceptions to the policies and processes.
    Average salary.
    Management struggles at times to keep pace with the rapid growth and cant seem to have foresight (apparent from the closure of a few projects)
    Some projects are undertaken without analysis of the teams bandwidth and without knowing if the organisation is ready for it.
    Top driven business decisions (namesake involvement of juniors)

    Advice to Management

    Avoid making exceptions to favor few resources. It has an impact on others.
