Bad for long term career growth senior management lacks vision

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

ProsPay is good and feedback on activities is given. Moreover junior cadre gel in well and are friendly. You can sometimes move up fast if you are in the proper lobby. Visibility is often there. Immediate bosses are supportive of their juniors

ConsManagement lacks vision and often makes erratic decisions. Factionalism is rife and your advancement depends on your sycophancy and the faction you are in. Juniors are not well treated by the middle management. Company lacks standard operating procedures in work and too much depends on the individual with no fail safe mechanisms in place.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease avoid the perennial firefighting mode. Take sound decisions at the corporate levels like viability of the projects to be taken up. More often than not management indulges in value destruction. Further please try to control this sycophancy culture and curb factionalism

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
