    Pros

    Works in fits and starts. Suddenly focussed on ERP. Hence it worked for a while.

    Cons

    Huge attrition.
    People use it as a breath-catcher in professional life.
    Senior management non-existent.
    Vision/Investment - unheard of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest, invest and invest. Sitting on a pile of cash and still counting its moolah at the cost of people.

Well this guy is companys motivational SPEAKER !!! God save'em ,Well that did it and I put my resignation the same day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have managers review by the teams they are maanging -there is brutal abuse of power by intimidation and threats with female employees pls take action .
    Please respect all of your employees not just "Managers"
    Please dont import that 'JI SAAB' Mentality form India here to west
    Manager should manage the Projects/Programs not Boss around showing his power.
    Please put qualified ppl in manager level not because they are from india and you are good friend of him.
    Dont always ask employees to do everythign for you - give something in return to them .
