Pros

Develops software products catering to Pharmaceutical Industries in the area of Drug Development and Pharmacovigilance. Currently No major competitors for its products. So a steady revenue is assured.

Cons

Too many and too frequent changes in the organization structure at the senior management level.
People hired and fired at the whims and fancies of the owner, without assigning convincing reasons and without giving proper notice. No attempt to keep the employee morale up. Communication from the top management to employees very poor.

Advice to Management

Bring in more professional management . Recognize that without well satisfied employess you will not get anywhere. Stop arbitraty hiring and firing.

    Pros

    The company operates like a two decade old startup and while that approach has its own share of downsides, it also provides some good opportunities for people to go beyond what has been asked.

    The only fathomable reason this company still continues to exist is its first mover's advantage (fast diminishing now) backed up by a few long standing employee-pillars who have supported this company despite the series of bad decisions taken by the executive management and sheer luck.

    Cons

    - As everyone has mentioned already, its a politics driven organisation. If you are making the right moves and are able to 'sell' yourself well, it will work well for you. What seem ludicrous otherwise, comes easy here. Example: people from process compliance go on to become head of sales support just because they are CEOs pet.

    - The company and more importantly the owner is in panic driven mode and has given in to micromanagement of every single aspect of the organisation rendering the middle and sometimes senior management helpless and vulnerable. The one who is most visible to the CEO considers himself 'safe', everyone else is prone to get fired

    - Absolute inability to foresee anything beyond 3 months. You let a narcissistic horndog create a parallel, expensive, rebellious and dysfunctional organisation, then try to take it away when it starts spinning out of control. You let an idiot fire half of your company, then another triple the headcount, then repent by firing both in due course. You let a manager hire all of his family into the company at senior positions, then you repent and let him go.

    as above, examples aplenty and they aren't stopping just yet.

    - Decision making at its worst at display here: Simple mantra: hire dysfunctional idiots at the top, then let them take bad decisions, then fire them but look through the pile of garbage and see if there is some salvation after all, save the most vocal and most politically aligned and fire the others. Then hire another idiot at the top and let the cycle continue. When company starts spinning out of control or just for the fun of it, get into a panic mode and fire more people without giving much thought to their careers or company's reputation.

    - Environment isn't conducive to real progress, no real transparency and efficiencies.

    - Lot of talk about values but when a person at the top openly shags one his subordinate, promoting and giving him onsite location suddenly starts looking like a cogent solution. Bravo.

    - Exceedingly discretionary behaviour between sales and technology tams. Mantra in play here: when in doubt, screw sales folks and side with technology, then work the politics to have technology people screw with each other. Though I was in technology, I resented how we spoke about sales. It's as though they are our not so cute lapdogs

    - Major competency issue in SPU heads. Product heads are not real business heads and considering what they are capable of, seems unlikely that they ever will be able to rise up to the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes, smell the coffee. Let the company survive and let some strategy work. Do have a workable strategy to begin with. One that makes you rich and everyone else miserable isn't probably going to work.

  2. A supportive environment for both freshers & experienced.

    Pros

    A lot of exposure to know the domain knowledge
    Good support from other members to learn domain knowledge

    Cons

    Doesn't train/support employees for developing required skills.
    Concentrate just on domain not on technical side of the profile
