Approves of CEO

Pros

1) Flexity of working timings (also, no swipe in or swipe out machines)
2) Option of working from home (if required)

Cons

1) Getting a good appraisal and then good hike is very difficult (unless you have few patents on yout name)
2) No project outings
3) Standard utilization % is not practical

Advice to Management

I do not have any suggestions to the Senior Management. But, I think they should not entirely concentrate on cost cuttings.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good technical exposure
    Good understanding of how business goes and what can be the impact of a error.
    Good policies overall, as they are not governed by the Manager.
    Good company to sit and enjoy...like if u want no growth or progress in life.

    Cons

    No HR
    No Manager to talk to to, they are there just for name sake.
    No importance to individual growth.
    Complex processes and policies which u can only learn after making mistake.
    Too big a organization to get your good work get noticed.
    Too much politics ...which is supported by the manager and you need to have good links with the Team Lead/Manager in case u want leaves...or good/OK rating.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk to the employees, we are humans too.....

    Pros

    Incremental challenges as you progress in your career. Excellent training oportunities both on-line and on-site. Excellent global networking, there is a community for every area of expertise and you have the chance to relate globally.

    Cons

    Highly political. It is very difficult to have visibility within the organization unless you are in a main office or on-site

    Advice to Management

    They need to bring more clarity of the real objectives of the units in order to sinchronize personal objectives with corporate objectives.
