    Too many ISB alums rule the place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat campus with excellent facilities

    ConsTop leadership is pathetic. We preach the world on business and leadership but we do not follow whatsoever. Escalations do not work. Values of people on the top are very mediocre. No one in the top management has a clue on the future of this school and how they would work on sustaining the name it has achieved so far. Too much focus on hiring ISB alums. If no one in the market is willing to hire them, lets hire them and pay them well so that the ranking shoots up. A bunch of people with no power or sense of direction run HR. No career growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease do not hire ISB alums. It could be disastrous to the school one day. Please empower HR.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great B-School for students but an average employer for employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Mohali, Punjab (India)

    ProsThe facilities provided are awesome, right from Gym to swimming pool and almost all sports facilities available for staff and their families. Work life balance is also good

    ConsVery low pay master, if you are an ISB Alum you can get here as an Associate Director and get good salaries but if you are an outsider, you will always be treated below par as compared to an Alumni of the School. The hiring pattern and policies of the School is very strange. Any one can work or is hired to work in any department without having relevant education or experience.
    The School hires lot of Alumni instead of outsiders which in my opinion is a bad option. The HR does not exist in this School. No staff engagement activities, no R&R, no recognition, virtually nothing happening here for the staff. At times you feel like working alone. Some departments are overburdened while some are having fun of their lives. If you want to grow in your professional life, this place is a straight No-No. This place is best suited for oldies in their mid 50's to enjoy the last phase of their working career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to bring in dynamic HR, please do not hire Alumni of the School, let them work in the open market. Increase salaries of Associates and Managers to the market levels.

    Not a very Professional Organisation

    Academic Associate (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsBranding
    Less strict with policies of leaves etc

    ConsUnfair preference given to ISB MBA alumni students. They are offered jobs at higher salaries than regular staff.
    Too much bureaucracy
    Not much career growth.
    As an academic associate you just have to take orders. They just want work to be completed , no botheration towards quality

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to recognise the value of employees. They are as important as the students of the school

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good learning opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI work in Centre for Executive Education which is like working in a corporate within an educational institution, tremendous learning, always be customer focused, scope of being creative, great flexibility, very children friendly (a plus for working mothers).

    A very good place for Researchers

    Research Associate (Current Employee)
    Hyderābād (India)

    ProsRA at ISB:
    - Great campus
    - Interaction with world class faculty of management
    - Chances of getting the phD offer from top b-schools increases significantly

    ConsThe pay is Less. Also there is dilemma about future if someone is not sure of doing phD.
    Research oriented work: so slow paced.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould focus primarily on strengthening the core competencies, than managing reputation

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
