    Difficult to manage finances,very poor pat scale

    Pat scale according to client, a person working for a client like COLORS works double than any other client team , why should pay scale be the same?

    Pros

    Process driven, drives client campaign in totality, offers the flexibility to work from any place like leading companies, a PR consultant and not a mere agency:)

    Cons

    Low pay, middle level managers seem to disappear

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders are not very effective in inspiring people of their organization to work. Most of the meetings with the top management is just passing on of messages. The methods of success with the clients are not being discussed at all.
