    Pros

    Good hand holding from day one.
    My stint was about 3 year & 8 months as Senior Analyst worked with a good set of senior team members & good support staff. Managers are well planned & give feedback time to time which gives room for improvement.
    The concept of the open door with top management is good. They are open to new advice & suggestions.
    Proper delegation of work. Training provided to execute the assignment & good supportive managers & senior managers.
    Fun at the workplace is nicely planned.
    Library at a workplace is systematically arranged which is quite helpful.

    Cons

    Management needs to work on Appraisal system is little slow.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly arrange sector wise case studies for team members.

    Pros

    Guiding and Very Professional project managers

    Cons

    Only 50 people are there in the company and at least 7-8 leave every month. There is too much politics

    The HR lies in the interview about the company. Many things which are not true are promised.

    90% of the job is cold calls. It's basically like a BPO.

    Cheap workplace Culture. Employees are not treated well even though the try to call it the AGR family.

    No scope for self development

    The management takes any project that comes even if it's pathetic. Most of us are engineering graduates who are made to do call centre like work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like they belong. The reason you have such a high turnover rate is the toxic workplace environment. They must improve it by appreciating employees. Employees are never appreciated and are treated like machines.

    Pros

    Travel...Nothing else can be expected form this company!!!

    Cons

    The list is too long:
    1. There are few buggers in the company. These buggers make your life as Hell. They will literally make you cry infront of all, They don't know anything about people management and these losers are simply sitting on chair and hatching the eggs.
    2. The company policy can be changed anytime, and the company don't even bother to highlight the changes.
    3. People are particularly instructed to keep a watch on employees who go out even to attend personal calls.
    4. You are always expected to sit late in office.If you leave at time,people look at you as if you did some crime.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down guys !!! No one is going to stay with your company for more than a year.

    Pros

    > Good Exposure to few sectors
    > Primary research skills will be strengthened
    > Project handling opportunity from start to end
    > Good travel opportunities

    Cons

    > The worst management I've seen.
    > Every manager (apart from few) are busy bringing projects and treats every employee as a resource.
    > Managers are just concerned about dumping the report on clients face and not about the quality of report
    > There is no work satisfaction or I'd rather rephrase it as no value addition that you would be doing
    > Manager's expect you to stay late but never tell you to leave early if there is no work
    > Less pay

    Advice to Management

    > Stop using the word resource
    > Pay as per the industry standards
    > Take care of your employees and your employees will take care of your clients
    > Try and build a brand and grab projects which will add value to the portfolio
    > Stop outsourcing work for others
    > Allot work to an employee as per his/her education level
    > Rename the company to Avalon Google search company
    > Instead of hiring more try and retain more

    Advice to Management

    Please start sector specific research and take up value added projects
