    "Consulting" Not really, at least by the way employees are treated.

    Pros

    Good thing about Start-ups/Small company is that you watch the entire solution very closely. But that's an advantage with all the small companies, not only with Kie Square

    Cons

    1. Employees who served their notice period for 3 months without salary, after getting out some of them might desperately need some money because they have practically borrowed money from all their friends in previous 3 months. Now they expect their hard earned money to come. Well what you get is excuses. They will keep delaying and delaying for as much as 12-18 Months.

    2. It’s a company with effectively no HR department. For all your HR queries and needs you will call them and nobody will respond.

    3. Consulting employees are made to sit with Accounts and Admin workforce. Heights of non professionalism.

    4. They keep delaying your monthly salaries for as much as 3 months by giving excuses like
    the clients have not paid the money. Well it’s not a direct program and the employee's contract
    is with Kie Square and not with Its clients.

    5. Work will be thrown at you, and then nobody from the leadership will show up in the office for meetings
    and road-map. You keep shooting email seeking a discussion, nobody will respond. After 15 day all of a sudden they will come and ask are we done with the work? Highly irresponsible management.

    6. You will claim some money after reading all the clauses and company policies. It will be denied sighting a Company policy which they just created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tough times. Start from reviving the work culture first, do not worry about Projects. Next decade is of Analytics, So projects will come. Focus on becoming a fairly OK employer for now. Very very week prospects ahead.

    Pros

    You will never find anything good in this company if even you will spend 10 years or so on .

    Cons

    1) Management is really bad and unprofessional . They do everything to keep themselves happy and wealthy . You will not find such selfish and unprincipled people in your whole career .

    2) Management does not give your salary on time and negative employee satisfaction in term of incentives / work facility / work management. Sometimes they don't give salaries for 2 months.

    3) You will be overloaded by work and no one will be there to responde your queries related to HR or any other .

    4) If you think that you will get incentives in 1 or 2 or 3 years ..........No it will not happen

    5) It is worse company to work, if you expect at least 10 % of corporate culture and healthy work environment here ----------------Impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Be employee oriented and appoint a good HR.

    2) Employee engagement and satisfaction needs to be seriously looked at and made more efficient.

    3) Be professional with your client \Customer at-least .

    4) Keep transparency in company.

    I have been working at KIE Square Consulting full-time

    Pros

    The projects are advanced in learning and skills.
    International trips and exposure for skillful employees, albeit at very short notices
    Intelligent atmosphere with people from great backgrounds.

    Cons

    At times communication gaps are there because of which certain sections have used it to their advantage
    Too many freshers from campuses who are still in their campus cushions and are not always prepared to take up the pressures and startup challenges
    Too many changes too soon and oldies are surely finding it difficult to handle. HR must play an aggressive role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not get too worried because of intentional pressures created on them.
    May want to focus more on laterals than campus hires, as they sway easily.

    I have been working at KIE Square Consulting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1. All the employees are from good colleges and have very good past work exp. So there is a lot of learning from each other. At no point do I feel that I am in a wrong place in terms of intellect level of co workers.
    2. For a passionate and energetic person who wants to take initiatives, lead projects, interact with clients, sky is a limit here. One can take as much responsibility as he / she wants. This leads to tremendous learning and exposure
    3. Apart from daily work, one gets to work on proposals, capability building, PoC which increases the level of engagement, exposure, learning. So one will never get bored in this company.
    4. Fast track growth - High Performers in this company gets recognized and also grows faster

    Cons

    Need to grow more aggressively

    I worked at KIE Square Consulting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1. Access to all social network sites like facebook, Orkut etc. No Firewalls.
    2. Movies & songs can easily be downloaded.
    3. You can apply to other companies using various job portals.
    4. Good learning & exposure ( If you are lucky enough to get into a good project)

    Cons

    1. Change in Policies(in company's favor) every now & then.
    2. Employee management & Employee satisfaction is missing.
    3. Employee Attrition rate is very high & tenure is very low.
    4. Most of the times you find yourself helpless & Frustrated.
    5. No fun(Parties, Outings, Trips). Once in a year is exception.
    6. Company's more attention is towards promoting themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company's growth lies in growth of its employees. Try to look at employees also. Instead of hiring new employees, try to look at the reason of employee attrition. They are the ones who are running company. If you do good work then there will be no need of Promoting as your work will speak for you.

    Pros

    Excellent Treatment of People even if one is a fresher or from support function like HR, Finance or Admin. Lot of freedom.
    Could not believe that Freshers from Campuses were put up in 5-Star Hotels.
    Growing firm with learning opportunities for all of the employees
    Top Management is easily approachable although there are layers coming up now

    Cons

    As the company is growing fast in size and scope, there is too much change happening too fast and layers getting created now. So we are trying to adjust to that fact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. We are proud of you.
    We should publcize more about our company and our work. We are far better than the rest.
