    I have been working at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Office culture is great, friendly atmosphere, The kind of work here attracts a lot of youth. Inspiring and will certainly turn you into a socialist

    Cons

    Some days have heavy working hours, but that does not really get counted into the bonuses. Since its an Ngo the pay is not very satisfactory

    I worked at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Diverse field of professionals. Good training before start of project. Met a lot of team-mates and built good friendships. Janaagraha has a good reputation in Bangalore; so it definitely helps to work as their ambassadors. I also liked the office.

    Cons

    Leadership and Management team are not very inspiring! They don't make you feel like a part of the team; so at the end of the day it just becomes a chore!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An organisation which has been set up with highest of beliefs . Janaagraha is doing great work but I really wish that the work environment was more personal; where the management genuinely makes you feel like being a part of a team. Secondly, with funds coming in from generous donors, I think an attempt should be made to do some real developmental work along with just carrying out surveys and making reports. That's just an opinion; other than that- carry on the good work/

    I have been working at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The job here is suitable for two groups of people - 1) Young people without jobs to gain experience (2) the rich/old people without any familial commitment who are not hard pressed for money and time.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional management. No transparency. The concept of part time work has no significance here. The so called part time work is more than over time work. There is no novelty in ideas or ideals. It appears to be complete drama and a play of hide and seek. Very tiring work schedules. Unnecessary repetitive discussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please dont take everyone for granted. Try to have empathy if not sympathy. Partime means - part time not extra full time or over time....!!!!! have meaningful exercises. Dont make policies and work execution just for the heck of doing something.

    Pros

    If you do not have any job, you can struggle with your time.

    Cons

    No management. Daily changes in your work. No professionalism. Managers are like your wife who don't know anything but will act as if they are equivalent to Wikipedia. If you do something they will share it and if you have done wrong then you may be fired. If you complete 6 months then chances are there that you will stay here else most get fired before that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to treat Employee as Employee not as servants or Bonded Labor.
