Really not an MNC culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

Pros1. Work from Home option
2. Broad spectrum of work opportunities

Cons1. Culturally it is like any other Indian companies - Leaders do not give personal space to produce results, work is done on an adhoc basis, managers only delegate work, are not competent themselves, managers just want to hear "yes" to all work given
2. Company is worried only about billing.Utilization is the buzz-word.
3. No employee development/learning
4. HR is literally non-existent. Heard them only during induction into the company
5. Feedback mechanism on work done is done only during year end

Advice to Senior ManagementHave open house sessions to get employee feedback directly and address them (not just through closed surveys); have skip meetings where employee meets senior mgt once in 6 months or so.
