Great brand especially in the health care sector with absolutely incompetent central leadership.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsA couple of positives I see

Great Brand Value
Low expectations out of employees in terms of performance.

ConsMy comments are not really connected with the hospital business, but with their retail business.

No processes, systems and business know-how.
The targets are set, upgraded, downgraded, reset several times a year and completely depends on the whims and fancies of a couple of individuals.
The central leadership team is absolutely incompetent - very self centered, egoistic, lack of business and functional awareness/knowledge.
Employees are treated like commodities and there are no communication channels.
Most of the central leadership team suffer from insecurity and are tech-phobic. In this era where emails are passe, one still needs to take the printout of mails and send it across to the central leadership.
No on-boarding, mentoring and coaching programs for new employees.
No leadership development programs.
A HR dept which does the normal operational activities - like paying salary on time, recruiting front line staff at absolutely abysmal remuneration ranges, etc pretty well but fails miserably anything connected with strategy.
The performance management system is a joke, no KRAs are set, no proper dialogue and discussion process - the rating and increment depends on the functional head.

Advice to Senior Managementget a professional retail executive and give him the authority to make changes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Its a super brand Brand in Healthcare domain in India & Asia as well It possess great technologies at par with best in world in modern… Cons: This Organization needs to focus on Best Practices of HR. Its always a challenge if there are multi locations through out the country to implement… Advice to Senior Management: Should View HR as business partner rather than just another function / department in the organization. Give more freedom to HR leaders, Unit Heads so… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
