    I have been working at Marlabs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked under a manager who supported and gave me a free hand to handle the project, returned a escalation or issue less year.

    Cons

    No vision from the Company Chairman & CEO. One of them forwards junk emails to his employees. No Thoughts around cost control. Though the company is low on revenue Senior management believes on lavish spending, regardless of they being productive or non productive. A team of 15 - 20 has a General Manager & a director, I have managed a much larger team for lesser designation. Again - No Cost Control Family members are hired, who probably dont move a pen for couple of years, but are paid well. When Bangalore is not fully utilized, we end up spending on sites at Mysore & Cochin. Employees and Maintenance staff turn up drunk to work or better consume alcohol in the office premises. Other support functions are pretty much useless, just for namesake, no actions on any issues reported. And raise their angry tails when any feedback or improvement ideas are shared. My Managing Director couldnt put up a decent presentation in front of a client. Can go on. But this is enough for now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees engaged in the Company activities, let them know if the Company is doing good and what their focus should be for every year. Communicate company goals to all employees so they know what they should do. Don't hire family members, and members from a specific community, It was more of one community against any others when I was there. Key positions filled in by Malayalees pretty much meant the rest cannot thrive in that set up. Have worked in bigger and better companies and am sharing the best practice on employee engagement and how the management was there and how we always looked upto them.

    Just they are hiring the people saying you are permanent employee to their Marlabs company Banglore and they are signing a contract with any company once their contract is finished they are saying you need to send a resignation mail so that you can go out of the company immediately.
