Fair but lacking job satisfaction

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

ProsA performance driven company, pays on part with industry standard, ethical- driven from top management, high regards to safety.

ConsTechnologically saturated, limited challenges. Multiple hierarchy, less emphasis on new process developments and improvements. (filled with old heads and 'not my job' type)

Advice to Senior ManagementChoose your mangers wisely. Good managers are not the one who talk well or make good ppt's. They shoyl be the one who motivate their team to achieve companies goals. Though numbers are the targets set by top management, an efficient conversion of numbers to technical targets at lower level necessary, like quality, process improvement & development, technology development etc. Coz at that level they don't give a dam about it. ACE stage is good as a process, but lacks motivational drivers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
