    Blood sucking monsters who survive on blood of their employees

    Manager Operation (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsI don't think there is any pros just writing to fill the space. Pathetic salaries, Horrible senior management, worst possible HR policies.

    ConsThere is no work life balance, management will ensure you don't have life after work. Salaries are horrible with just 5% increase in salaries in 2013-14. Minimum 12 hours working if you are at Head Office. Senior management is full of accountants who don't know basics of management. If you are MBA dare not join this company as accountants will be more than happy to ruin your career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThrow those accountant out of cabins and let some professionally qualified employees to lead the team.

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

    The job encompassed recruiting Financial Advisors and sale of insurance services.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe most significant pro is the money that can be made. A significant amount sold as insurance can fetch quite a sum as commission plus salary. Another great con is the relation that the employees make with the customers, which can exist even after leaving the said job.

    ConsCons are basically employee politics, severe work pressure and long hours of work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a little lenient with the targets. and do not inflate those as the orders are passed down. Plus a little less follow up calls would make employees feel that they are a trusted by the company increasing motivation.

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