    Full of politics and unprofessional people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIncase you are willing to sacrifice your health and personal life, join this company and learn what struggle is.

    Cons1) Very unprofessional people(including senior management)
    2) Poor policies and HR processes. They tried to falsely impose fine on me when I resigned, for being on long vacation. I had to fight to prove them wrong.
    3) Many of employees are working since ages and just because of good relations with senior managers, they consider themselves owner of company, irrespective of how worse they perform.
    4) If you are good at your work, you'll be overburdened with other people's work as well.
    5) Management focuses on short term gains instead of long term plannings. So they end up losing clients quickly.

    The list is very long to write here.... I had to quit in one year of hell, what else to say.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn from other companies how to be professional.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
