    I worked at Firestar Diamond full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Firestar Group is very good for learning & certain departments have good growth prospects. The brand name itself grabs good future prospects; even after leaving the company.

    Cons

    Education is not considered for few departments for promotions & appraisals. Compensation hike procedure is not standardised.

    Advice to Management

    Non biased appraisals & promotions need to be done and multitasking need to be considered; if an employee opts to accept multiple responsibilities.
