    Current Employee - Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Current Employee - Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I have been working at Times Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Freedom to implement thoughts, good learning and exposure to latest technologies. Maintain work life balance. usually amicable work environment and supporting colleagues

    Cons

    Worst HR policies, appraisal, promotions, even selection happens on the jack you have. The more senior reference you have better are your chances of growth. No salary parity, HR does nothing & is clueless. In some cases appraisals have not been given for 2 years just because Sr management failed to bring business. Some people were hired and then asked to leave in 4 months because business strategy changed. Sr management has no clue where they wish to go, usually first they spend humongous amount of salaries to sr managers then within an year start asking junior employees to justify salary and eventually say that BU does not have budget for appraisals etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your HR policies, bring parity in employee salary and designation. Learn that better brand name of college not necessary means better performance. Invest in middle management rather in Sr management as they are the actual doers of company. Have long term goals rather than short term

    Pros

    Open Culture, Low pressure and plenty of time to look out for new initiatives in the company. You can get to know various things other than your normal work

    Cons

    Red-tapism or Babuism at its best. You need to be at a top position or know who is at that level to extract the required information.
    Also too many levels of hirearchy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just bring more tranparency
