    Great Learning Experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Janalakshmi Financial Services

    Pros

    The finance team was very small, just my manager and me, so the responsibilities were varied and provided many learning opportunities - technical skills, first hand learning about NBFCs in India, challenges in providing financial services to the low income population in India

    Cons

    The work culture was more rigid than I was used to

    I worked at Janalakshmi Financial Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company is good and growing like anything, good for number chasers and target lovers. Motto of company is good which is helping lots of people.

    Cons

    Lots of work as compared to heads. no time to go home, late night work every day. 12 to 14 hrs of working hrs everyday. Less salary as compared to responsibilities. No holidays, no sundays or weekends to relax. ground staff is totally irresponsible and lethargic. For the management Only numbers matter. False commitment from management regarding staff benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to the branches and see how staff is working till late nights always. Do not chase only numbers plz take care of staff also. Apply micro management to track staff.
