    Satisfactory, Good learning and oppotunities

    Analyst (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsGood working hours, Commutation facilities, steep learning curve, good opportunities, high importance to culture and ethics, Higher management is good, not to be complaint about.

    ConsMid level management is not effective, open minded and needs more experience or training in handling the team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be unbiased while recruiting your own management people in terms of religion and value your employees and their views more.

    Sharing Experience

    Associate (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsExcellent facilities such as Pickup and Drop, Food, Insurance, Protection, Infrastructure, health Checkup. No doubt, unmatchable in the country.

    ConsThey'll try to hire a Lion and then they will make sure that he will eat fodder. Once you are allocated to any project you'll then under full mercy of your manager. Salary increment, Promotion all are based on discuss not on performance. Salary is not par with other IBs. If you want then resign and bargain, which most of the people do, rather, management offer them. No leadership in management in India. Everything is setting.

    I'll recommend this if you want to enjoy life and hardly think about work. Leave to the hardworking people in the firm and enjoy. Party with management and they'll take care of you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease value handwork of true people, not only the one you know but also the one who does good work.They'll remember you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nightmare Company - BPO

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAbsolutely no pros of working with this company. If you wish to destroy your career then please get carried away by the infrastructure (which was ofcourse built by Lehmann) and see your ship sinking.

    ConsI worked for just 6 months. Came to know in and out of it and opted out to leave the job for my better future. First of all its a BPO, only good thing is home pick and drop thats it. Pathetic food, age old senior management, no encouragement to fresh blood or fresh ideas, zero or very limited growth opportunities, employees have no idea what they are doing in the firm. They just come sit for 9 hours, make one or two non sense calls to japan bosses, make noise on the floor and get back home.

    Not a good place to start as a fresher

    Analyst (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsGreat culture and people. Friendly environment, higher management is always accessible. Flexible hours, great facilities like cafeteria and gym and parking.

    ConsVery reactive atmosphere with a lot of time spent on planning and testing than the actual development as such. Hard to make quick fixes/releases. Technology exposure is limited.

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

    A falling Sun -- clueless organisation

    Associate (Current Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsNot much of a positives that I can think of. But yes higher management dream big, although they are struggling to maintain the organisation's ranking.

    ConsClueless Higher Management, Non-executioner mid level Management and helpless employees is the characteristics of this organisation. Management is not thinking beyond few years. It is just few years away from Ramping down Global operations and going back to its forte' i.e. Asian Markets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet Realistic and think sensible.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
