Poor Man Management

Senior Advisory Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Karāchi (Pakistan)

I worked at Systems Ltd full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood working environment. Healthy atmosphere. Many opportunities to learn.

ConsLack of Management. No respect for employees. There is no criteria of salary increment, good relationship with immediate manager can get good raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove Man Management. Think beyond the Revenue comes in Foreign Currency and look towards the employee as they are your tools & resources.

The oldest software company in the country but still running on ad hoc basis

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Karāchi (Pakistan)

I have been working at Systems Ltd full-time for more than 10 years

ProsA lot of opportunities for learning as due to the nature of work, one gets exposed to such a variety of clients and environments.

ConsSadly, despite being a service company, it did not and does not give its employees their due share. They have always been long on talk but short on actual delivery.

I say that on the basis of one of the longest associations with the company.

Those of you working there currently will not agree with me.

Those of you no longer there would agree with every word of mine.

There is one reason for both statements above; those in management currently and in the past have always followed the policy of maintaining a very "chummy" attitude with the employees. It's only when you get passed over for promotion repeatedly and are finally fired for no rhyme or reason do you come to realize how strong an old boys club the management is. When you look back, it is then that you see how favoritism is the only criteria for advancement.

Senior people are fired so that money may be saved by hiring cheaper junior ones.

All current employees: I know you are shaking your heads. Shake away, but please keep your CV's updated for the day you turn up for work and find that you've been fired too.

It certainly taught me a lesson that I now keep foremost in mind: I work for money, you want loyalty, get a dog.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to the current crop of kiddie management? What can I say, except: Keep at it, boys. Keep firing people and hiring new ones. It's a buyer's market. Sadly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Professional Organization - Unprofessional with Senior Professionals

Senior Manager Level (Former Employee)
Lahore (Pakistan)

I worked at Systems Ltd full-time for more than 10 years

ProsA good friendly working environment, many opportunities tolearn and diversified client base.

ConsNo respect and value of senior professionals working in the company. One fine morning, you walk into the office, and the Chariman or MD tells you to leave the company, not necessarily with a Reason. And then you see job postings for the same position.

One negative incident supercedes ALL the positive achievements of the past 10+ years, during which time the professional had put in tremendous amount of effort and achived f=great commendations from Local/INternational Customers. In some case, a professional was asked to leave the company without any reason, despite his great achievements in delivering projects and gaining followup business.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet real, respect and give value to senior professionals, and stop favoritism.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
