A company for sycophants and bootlickers

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Pune (India)

ProsIf your only ability is to nicely suck up to your manager, this is the company to go to.

ConsIf you are an honest hardworking fellow who rely on your contributions only, then you wont prosper. You would most likely see sycophants / bootlickers getting promoted while you are ignored. Chances are that if you complain about it, you would get the sack as the stupid performance appraisal process these people have is heavily reliant on manager's feedback and when all managers who are your manager's peer are part of the old boys network who support sycophancy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
