    I have been working at John Keells full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent infrastructure, Alright Transport and neat and clean atmosphere.

    Cons

    Bias management , sexist attitude, Perverted Sr. managers, Irrelevant HR which is run by the management itself.
    Served for a year, overall was an alright place to work at. The management focuses more on the female gender then on there work. Last moment extra login requirement, extra working days every month without any overtime payout.
    Code of conduct only applies to executives not to management.
    Incentive structure not transparent and no explanation of anything just fingers pointed from one person to another. Promotions are pre-decided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be an example for young executives to follow and focus less on the power-trip your designation brings you.

    Pros

    Good infrastructure, healthy and working environment and very nice people working at executive level.

    Cons

    Employees are not paid according to their caliber. Very bad style of external recruitment through consultancies. Okay okay transport! but not that good. Support of john keells needs to be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just don't go according to stats.. It would be better if top management interact with people working at executive level.

    The management is really partial. One can lose their job any given day. They know who is going to get the next promotion

    Pros

    safe place to work for girls.

    Cons

    pathetic management.. the HR is never with the employees. people are asked to leave the company if the management doesn't like them. They even threaten to take your job or put your salary on hold without any reason. If someone questions them, they are issued a warning letter and their probation is extended. No one is allowed to go to the higher management or we are in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should be more involved with the employees and get to know the inside stories and not just go with what the management says.

    I have been working at John Keells

    Pros

    JKCS provides good exposure and growth opportunities to its employees. The management is willing to listen and adapt new ways to improve the technical quality.

    Cons

    In many projects, the management commits to unreasonable deadlines, and pushes teams to commit on to those. Also there have been incidents where the technical quality of solutions are compromised in favor of meeting business deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention should be given to improving overall technical quality of the organization, and also process improvements. That is the crucial area of improvement at the moment.
