    I have been working at Beroe Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    nothing good to talk about in particular

    Cons

    there are no pros as the management goal is to only make money at any cost
    performance reviews is a divide and rule strategy
    no caring for employees - weekends also working without air condition in a hot city like chennai
    they say they have head office in USA - but it is only on papers
    quality of work is substandard
    they sell client information in market
    no body knows and trust beroe in market poor reputation among suppliers and vendors
    they promise suppliers and vendors business to provide information, but they never turn back once their project is done
    communication skills of analysts is very poor - 90 % of analysts are college freshers whom they showcase as industry experts
    canteen food is very bad
    they have no intelligence tools
    they only do googling job
    they are trying to win business by quoting the least among competition even though they dont have capability
    senior managers in company are least capable their only aim is to survive and sustain a high paying job as they wont get jobs in good companies
    it is the most racist company to work at managers promote people from their own communities
    management is very unpredictable and short tempered every 3 months they change strategy there are no clear goals vision and strategies
    no framework of research team in past 6 times research framework has changed
    most incapable people are engagement managers they only do post man job and steal the credit from hard work done by analysts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop this cruel business of fooling people playing with careers of freshers
    stop all unethical practtices to promising businesses to suppliers
    stop this infinity work on analysts they are not donkeys
    stop fooling analyst by providing liqour at every town hall and making them slog for 16 to 20 hours

    2. ability to interact with clients

    2. Not a well known brand outside procurement

    I have been working at Beroe Inc. part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    townhalls, work yourself to death ( and consider it a "learning opportunity")

    Cons

    extremely short deadlines. expected to work 18 hours in a day. rules are not uniformly applicable. an analyst can come at 3 pm without anyone raising an issue about it, while another analyst gets fired for coming at 11 am one day.
    160 hours long MI expected to be completed in one week. analysts are not allowed to have any say regarding project feasibility, deadline etc. On the smallest of issue, employes are told to "take a call" since they have no dearth of analysts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have uniform rules that are applicable on everyone equally. Things like project duration, feasibility, leaves, employe performance and level movements should be made transparent so that they are not so biased and irrational.

    Don't drive an employee to the point of suicide by making them work like slaves and demoralizing them all the time.

    Pros

    Helpful people
    Least possible hierarchy
    Faster growth at lower levels
    Lots of learning
    Flexible work timings

    Pantry ;)

    Cons

    Location (Chennai)
    Slow growth from L5 onwards
    Cafeteria is a disaster
    No sodexo

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a small company, you don't have the leverage to slower employee growth and yet expect them to stay. Employees have great opportunity outside thanks to the learning at Beroe. The new metrics made are in lieu of short-term benefits (aka savings).

    Bottom line: HR policies not in sync with/ in favour of either employee or organization.
