    They plant a tree every month in a sanctuary in the name of each employee and you get a certificate each month!
    Flexible timings.
    Salary is paid on time.

    Cons

    Bad culture and favouritism.
    Bad work life balance due to miscommunication, mismanagement, lack of processes, improper requirement gathering leading to rework for everybody.
    Everything is urgent, high priority! The deadlines are impossible.
    Medknow is acquired by wolters kluwer but it doesn't look like the integration has happened successfully, Mumbai office has different rules & culture.
    The management prefers keeping employees busy by giving them fake requirements/projects rather than encouraging them to learn, explore, research and bring in new technologies and processes.
    Medknow is run like its an isolated individual company of 100 employees and doesn't feel like an MNC.
    Lack of processes and few dependency creators make it difficult to work for everyone across departments.
    Cheap crowd involved in silly politics just to avoid work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't Ignore the slackers because of their dependency/friendship.
    On board new industry leaders, Solution Architects, business analysts from other business units of wolters kluwer or outside.
    Bring in processes.
    Hire people in technology to automate most of the manual work done by operations and finance teams.
    Invest in a good ERP solution for Medknow or if a solution already exists with wolters kluwer then integrate medknow in it.
    Encourage automation, work from home.
    Being in the healthcare sector, build a work culture which also focuses on enriching the Physical & Mental health of the employees, vendors.
    Integrate Medknow with other business units/Companies of wolters kluwer to increase transparency Or shuffle employees across business units.
