    Pros

    The work profile is very rewarding. Opportunities to deepen your knowledge of your qualification. Interaction with external stakeholders - leads to networking.

    Cons

    Where to begin! The core problem is the people and the culture. Conservative, chauvinist, unqualified persons at high positions. Unwillingness to nurture a team culture. Favouritism at its height! Boss' pets will get promotions, salary hikes, fat bonuses, even though they categorically and openly contribute pathetically insignificant to the team cause. Credit is not given where it is due. A few select persons at positions like agm, dgm, gm are quite clearly lacking in basic office etiquette and manners. They are openly rude to team members. No people skills whatsoever. Interestingly, if it's a male boss and a female employee, relations will be smooth because men here are men. Appalling work life balance. Late sittings and slow work rate by butt-licking employees are actually rewarded. These employees order lunch for bosses, catch a taxi for them after work, bring stationery for them. But those who are efficient and methodical are frowned upon because they leave by 6pm - which is considered very early! There are team leaders who refuse to face external parties and order subordinates to do it and then put the blame on the team if something goes wrong. But at yearly reviews these so called leaders are the first to take credit for the entire teams performance AND participate in verbal bashing of the same employees. So apparently the employee who manages all operations through the year cuz you are too arrogant to bother is the one with no managerial skills, and the one who has worked at a snail's pace but brought you your teas and coffees and snacks is the deserved candidate for promotion. Yes, "requests" are made to bring coffee and snacks. Anyone who raises their voice against such garbage of a culture is deemed to be "immature" and "doesn't know corporate life". Qualified ppl who are academically better than the boss are suppressed and kept in low positions like "trainee" or at the most "assistant mgr". The organisational structure is filled with layers and layers of hierarchy. Lots more to list.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your shell and look at your own self from a third persons view. You will be shocked. Take a minute and wonder why qualified skilled ppl prefer bse only for a short duration for "experience" and then move elsewhere. Go undercover and feel what your employees are feeling. Again, you will be shocked. Your bubble will burst. Just because a person is working there for 10-15-20 years does NOT mean he is equipped to manage today's generation of ppl. Almost all of your people are still living in the old days. They still think it's the 70s 80s 90s. Wake up.


  7. Pros

    Freedom to take decisions on any given situation.

    Cons

    Unexpected travelling and nothing more.

    I have been working at BSE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If able to find the right department and management team, you will be recognized for doing a good job. But finding that department is a crap-shoot. Awesome cafeteria. Job security

    Cons

    An Imbalanced Work / Life . People say it to be a flat hierarchy, but in reality it is not. Virtually no communication between senior management and employees regarding issues that will directly impact employees. Can be very thankless place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Environment doesn't reward motivated and ambitious employees, nor does it give them any reason to stay. So the best and brightest leave resulting in a lot of weak players being left behind to shoulder an increasing burden.

    Pros

    One of the premier institutions of the capital market that drives the economy of the country and provides a barometer for judging corporate efficiency among its peers. One stop provider of corporate efficiency for banks, institutions, shareholders, employees, investors as well as funding for new startup's especially in the nascent SME sector

    Cons

    Not much extra curricular activities i.e. events, debates,quizzes, sports etc at the Exchange.
