    Boring, lack of creativity, no free thinking (in fact it's suppressed); it's white collared sweat shop. Do yourself a fa

    In A Senior Role (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    ProsSalary on time and yearly bonus, weekends are honored (only in 1 team though)

    Great company for those who are looking for career in Executive Search, but have limited opportunities within research

    Research Analyst (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    ProsYou get to interact with high profile executives with great achievements and work with experienced consultants. The overall environment of the company is also very conducive.

    Simply fooled myself working here

    Research Analyst (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    ProsComfortable timings and Sat-Sun offs

    ConsI Slogged like a donkey for 5 years with no human respect and dignity...forgot about growth ..its a place where I wasted my time, career and health

    A place where ppl are promoted based on being good in getting work done by others..with no performance record.

    Rumours, which even I did not know about myself...with no one to dine with, to talk to ...I wonder how I survived all these..Worst discrimination That I went through..I literally felt like a untouchable in a village..
