    I worked at Iksula full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good learning environment for freshers Extra efforts get recognized Management open for ideas and genuinely care to improve the working conditions by taking regular feedback

    Cons

    Some managers can be a headache. They make promises just to retain people and don't deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Be extremely careful while selecting managers, you have lost some exceptional people because of poor managers and politics.

    Good to learn, Nice environment to work, Good leaders.

    Cons

    I dont think there are any.

    Advice to Management

    If your employee has taken any decision, please try to check out why has he taken that step, don't just ask his managers. As per me, we making money by our good service where team strength is more important. If we are loosing 10 agents and 1 can save them then we have to save them and transfer that 1 saver guy to another process. But you have asked to resign...BTW...nice experience with you DJ....Thanks for that moments..I...

    Dear Former Iksulaite, It is very hard for us to say goodbye, especially to those people who have been true to their tasks. Reshuffling to other processes also have their limitation. However, sometimes business calls need a tough stand and this is one of them. However, we try ...

    I worked at Iksula full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It's an aggressive company with lovely sales team. Has forward thinking in terms of technology. Practically follows open door technology, anyone can talk to the senior leaders of the person wants to.

    Cons

    Lacks transparency in communication. Decisions get delayed as responses stay pending for long. Mid level is void of knowledgeable persons. Does not use technology.

    Advice to Management

    Existing technology needs to be used to bring in operational efficiency. Mid level managers need training on communication and people management.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    -open work culture -flexible timings -motivated managers ready to help -a good team of hr -extensive work oppurtunity

    Cons

    -space crunch but it is manageable -canteen Since these are materialistic problems they can be and will be sorted soon I hope.

    Advice to Management

    It's been my first job and I am thankful for getting placed in Iksula. Sad that few of our seniors left as soon as we joined but it's part of work. Managers of Mrkops are brilliant both in work and handling team. I wish there could have been a library in office for reading.

    I worked at Iksula full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    1. Flexible work hours 2. Good chances that you will meet like minded colleagues. Mostly young people who are trying to find a footing in their careers 3. Can offer a great learning experience if you are open to work beyond your responsibilities 4. Department Heads and Team Leads were very welcoming of your queries, concerns and requests

    Cons

    1. Felt under appreciated from senior mgmt at times. May kill motivation unless you voice your opinion 2. Freshers have a bad reputation of eloping whenever possible. Iksula has a strict bond in place that keeps freshers in check. There are no ways to bypass the bond even if you have a legitimate reason to not honour it 3. Frequent tunnel vision due to dearth of clients (hope this has been fixed by now)

    Advice to Management

    Transparency needed. Keeping employees waiting/in the dark can lead to dissatisfaction. Many hardworking employees can use some motivation.
