Nice and staid company

Director (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

ProsGreat culture, keen to ensure job security, professional.

ConsHighly profit focused, reducing the strategic outlook only to the short term for markets of the future. Highly centralized. Relationship oriented - at the cost of meritocracy. Often fails to identify incompetence giving the impression that incompetence is tolerable in order to preserve the 'job security' culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementTW is a case of not practicing what its preaching. A little more focus on talent management and talent models will go a long way in increasing profitability as well as market share. That and a special focus on business services. The RoI on Business services is terrible!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
