I worked at Take Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

TAKE is a software company that has been expanding in the supply chain and clinical sectors. The company has a great potential but requires a clear thinking management that can push it in the right direction. The pay and benefits are exceptional if you are a manager with great potential and ability. In fact TAKE is one of the highest paying employers at IIMs in India.

Cons

During the recession in 2008 and 2009 the company laid off several employees while at the same time acquired several companies. This has created lot of mistrust and bureaucracy. Employees have very little faith in the management while management continues to show a behavior that displeases employees. This includes constant change in organizational policy, reduction in benefits etc. Several of the top managers including the COO have quit the company in the past one year adding fuel to the burning fire.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. I did not even have an exit interview when I quit.

    Pros

    Overall Take is an average company to work for. The few good things here are that there are very talented professionals working here and I wish the company would care more for them. The company works on some very good supply chain solutions that will provide a good experience of supply chain and inventory tracking. It will also help understand how ERPs work especially Oracle Apps.

    Cons

    My initial time with the company was good but since the management changed and things were taken over by Chennai, the company seems to be getting worse every year. There is absolutely no fairness and the employees are treated very badly. There were lay offs once every few months and job security was nil. There was pay cut across the company which was supposedly temporary but the pay was never restored. Overall the work load here is not very high but the company isn't doing so very well. It appears as though the company will either close in few years or will be sold to another buyer

    Advice to Management

    Changing the company does not mean laying off employees who have been with the company for many years. It can be done without firing employees. THere should be some focus on products that are successful in the market, rather than focussing all the energy entirely new products.
