    Pros

    You'll be on job from day one, so you will get a chance to learn things fast. Fixed timings - mostly 9 am to 6 pm

    Cons

    Work : No fixed responsibilities, will be doing so many things you will end up being jack of all trades and king of none. Very few seniors to help you learn and zero trainings in place. Benefits : Zero employee benefits, salary is not at all similar to industry standards. No employee retention strategy. Culture : There is no culture in place, the company is being run as a government organization. Nothing to get motivated - no growth opportunities, no fun and bad leave structure. Leadership : The CEO is nice to work with, but there are some managers who don't know how to manage people and they hardly know how to deal with a project.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees, put a retention strategy in place and introduce employee benefits. Most importantly, come out of your age old principles and look at what is happening around you.

    Pros

    Brilliant learning environment-every project provides a lot of exposure, very talented bunch of people, fixed timings (mostly till 6/7pm from 9 am)

    Cons

    No retention strategy in place for performing employees, multi-project handling means chaos, monetary performance incentives are missing

    Advice to Management

    Have retention strategies in place for employees- offer variable pay. Fix job descriptions in reality and paper, and dont change them once employees join. Manage people to grow.

    Pros

    Good clients, good starting place for a career in Research, you will be on the job immediately after you join.

    Cons

    Senior Management is hugely employee unfriendly, and they lack people management skills. Appreciation of good work is not part of the company culture, if the company has any culture. There are documents defining various roles - however, none followed - sometimes you will be only editing and formatting PowerPoint slides for 2-3 months and nothing else. And above all, no value for personal life. The environment is more like that of a military training camp for the graduate joinees, rather than that of a professional organisation. Not many senior people have stayed with the company for long.

    Advice to Management

    The Chairman and CEO are good, but the Second-in-Command fails completely when it comes to managing people or managing projects. Employees complaining about this person is a common place at Prayag. Better hire an experienced person to run the day-to-day operations.
