No growth unless politically affiliated. Poor promotion practices. Elitist field mentality

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood pay for most jobs, compared to industry average.

ConsUnless politically tied in, hired through a preferred / sponsored program, willing to live out of a suitcase, or carried into management on the back of your spouse (who also happens to work for the company), do not come in and expect to get to management pay grade anytime soon. Even if the job is compatible with flexible work arrangements can still be strapped to your desk by a manager with an old school mindset. In general, management does not care about the employee voice are not held accountable on their poor employee survey results. They pass it off as "employee perception". Management getting taken care of financially during a recession and restructuring while worker bees pay stagnent. Typical corporate environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up or retire. Old school mindset is a thing of the past. Stop the good old boy hiring and promotion practices. India is not the future of our company....looks good on the books, but will be company's downfall. You've been caring too little for too long.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
