    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. A subsidiary of Volt is for sure an added advantage in the long run. Provided the company focuses on branding of the same. My stint with the company was quite good.

    Cons

    Lacks in employee engagement and a bit of politics

    Build the brand value. Seriously.

    Pros

    Company is good in certain aspects which includes: They provide salary on time They have good client base Full day considered even if you complete 6 hours.

    Cons

    Need to interact with employees face to face on Client side. those who want have words regarding their onsite employers are unable to do so.

    Advice to Management

    provide some facilities to client side employees also. Frequent policy changes takes place without taking into account the client side employees.

    Pros

    The pay’s alright and on time but that is the only upside…

    Cons

    1.Unprofessional work environment 2.Awful work culture 3.No scope for growth 4.Hire and Fire policy 5.The organization has serious communication issues, at multiple levels. But ironically, there are endless meetings, most of which add to zero value. 6.You are "managed" by individuals who really have no business being in supervisor roles. You are micromanaged to the point that you are fearful of doing your basic tasks wrong. 7.If you're sincere, responsible, outgoing and aspire to be someone then this is not the right place for you. Most of the positive reviews about the company are fake..

    Advice to Management
