    Pros

    Employee Centric workplace with human touch. Bosses could be good or bad but company is best in terms of increment, education policy, promotion, PLI, family get-togethers.

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at IDEA Cellular full-time

    Pros

    Superb work culture, your peers respect your views. While it may not be same throughout various departments, generally a good place to work that focuses on employee welfare initiatives.

    Cons

    The monetary benefits are anything but best in industry. The payoff is meager, a lot of differentiation in people on the same job band and miserly increments and bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee wellness includes all aspects, not focussing on monetary part is a major negligence.

    The lookout and approach toward data is brilliant, and not lost in the wind like most of Idea's competitors.

    Pros

    Organization structure, policies and values. Employee Engagement activities from Aditya Birla Group and also Idea Cellular. Growth Opportunities.

    Cons

    I believe challenges are way of learning. However there were no challenges to work and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was wonderful and cooperative. I got opportunity to facilitiate Himanshu Kapania and other key stake holders of the company. I loved to work with them. However Management should be concern about employees working in same position and department for many years !
