    Pros

    There is no political interference, there are no religious boundaries everyone is equal. It represents true India,

    Cons

    Bureaucrats have a hold over the Army and some for their personnel importance try to interfere with the functioning of Army. Army is remembered only during time of crisis and that to for a little time only. Some Seniors are to harsh on their juniors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be just to your juniors and motivate & encourage them to bring out their Best.

    Former Employee - DGR Sponsered Security Services in Jaipur, Rajasthan (India)

    I worked at Indian Army as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    by far the fairest working environment given the professional hazards.the constraints of service conditions prepare you for life's many challenges.

    Cons

    liberties and freedom available to civ counterparts is absent,the financial compensation for unquantified loss due to frequent dislocations to family and children takes a heavy toll on an army offrs' life.some times leading to unfortunate situations in life viz divorces,perpetual worry to keep family happy and satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the honour and sheen of the army needs to be restored.at no point of time the civ services lobby should be allowed to have better perks and priveleges because never do they put their life on line of duty.leave aside doing their dutis honestly.
