    I worked at CRISIL

    Pros

    The teams are dedicated to producing high quality output. As the leadership is enthusiastic and hard working, entry level professionals learn the ropes of the trade well.

    Cons

    Work life balance is pretty bad. The belief that working long is working hard disrupt personal life terribly. An efficient person working lesser hours will not get a satisfactory performance appraisal and due opportunities for growth. Salary is not on par with market pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on work-life balance to encourage employees to stay.

    I worked at CRISIL full-time

    Pros

    Great Work culture and profile, good people, friendly managers, flexible timings and supportive teams. Good exposure and learning

    Cons

    Compensation is not the best in the industry. Given the work profile and competition in the industry better pay structure should be offered to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at CRISIL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's the best in terms of compensation, opportunities for growth internally, people-friendliness, etc. Great office, great systems and procedures for this size of a company and great diversity.

    Cons

    It's work after all. And hard work. It's a fast growing company- so, there are challenges associated with it. Like every other place, the 80:20 rule applies here too

    I worked at CRISIL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good for freshers but only for a year or two
    1. Friendly Work Environment
    2. Flexibility
    3. Good Facilities

    Cons

    So proud of the brand name.... Well dont go by the NAME....
    1. Really BAD compensation
    2. Employees made Managers on the basis of their stay in the company
    3. Biased Performance Appraisals
    4. NO Motivation, Appreciation
    5. They take feedback but never work on it.
    I could go on and on.... but i guess this is enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't act like you care & take feedback if your just gonna do what you want and for gods sake don't rate employees just because they are close acquaintances or they have stayed for a longer time in the company.

    Upper management should step into the juniors shoes and know what their going through rather than standing and judging them.
