    I have been working at Iksula

    Pros

    Iksula has thought me a lot more than any other company I've worked for. Two years into my writing career, I joined here. I was initially a quick job hopper, but Iksula managed to keep me hooked. Like all relationships, we had out ups and down, however, we got through it together, helping each other out. The appraisals here are the best I've come across and good performance won't go unnoticed. Regular language training...

    Cons

    You meet a lot of different ppl here and when I say different I meant it. Creative, hardworking, slobs, suck-ups, eccentric, quirky, intelligent, and even absolute bimbos. The office environment changes from floor to floor and team to team here, and the temperature of each floor is palpable. Toilets can sometimes have wet floors and no tissue. But nothing that's not fixed when asked for.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you want to be a corporate or an ad agency. Don't meander somewhere in between.

    Dear Iksulaite, Thanks for summarizing the work culture so well. Yes, we do hire people from a bunch of different industries and since we're neutral when it comes to gender/religion/caste/creed....etc., we do have people from a good collection of socio-economic backgrounds. ...

    I worked at Iksula full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The HR department is quite active and they have various ways using which the employees can convey their grievances. I loved working here. I loved the work culture here and would totally recommend this company to a friend.

    Cons

    I can barely think of any. Bike parking facility for the employees should be provided.

    Advice to Management

    I really can't think of anything. Maybe the 5th working Saturday can be taken away and the notice period can be reduced from two months to one month. But other than that I loved working under the management.

    Dear Iksulaite, We thank you for your inputs. The HR team has taken up being pro-active in addressing people's underlying concerns and hence you see the activities. Also with the use of technology, they're able to spread out and reach each person working here. Bike parking is ...

    I have been working at Iksula full-time

    Pros

    It is very sad to say, after having spent a year here, I can't find anything good to talk about it.

    Cons

    Here goes the list: 1. Employees don't get paid their worth. The appraisals leave everyone unhappy and demotivated 2. I've seen people getting promoted because they have good relations with their managers. Whether they have skills or no, is not checked. Some team leads have no idea how to manage a team. 3. People are made to work like machines, sometimes also on weekends with no compensation. People have also waited...

    Advice to Management

    I don't feel the management is very open minded to take any advises or suggestions into consideration. They are too busy keeping the clients happy and the employees discouraged. But just in case some good manager is listening, please get yourself educated in some management techniques.
