    I worked at Indian School of Business full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed, Great infrastructure. The school definitely has some bright young employees and some strong leaders.

    Cons

    Not very driven. Staff treated as non priority. Faculty and students matter far more. Many employees clearly not smart enough for the roles they've been assigned. Quality of experience depends heavily on your team and reporting managers.

    Advice to Management

    Re energize HR. Focus on real Learning and Development of employees. Introduce leadership training for people managers. Create clear cut measureables for every role. Cut the flab.

    I have been working at Indian School of Business full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Limited work at the senior level with great work life balance - you can choose when to go to office. Free perks for Director and above positions, such as paid international travel, although reality is that there is no traction on the international front in any area. Management can easily cast shadow on board’s eyes!

    And also, on the house parties are great at top management level - limited and closed invite list with junior staff waiting with hopeful eyes. Great place for second career or retirement.

    Average person can get very good growth here as most staff below average and not capable of leaving, even though humiliated every hear in increments by high paid top management.

    Cons

    HR is weak - hiring process not transparent or meritorious. Alumni and Spouse hiring without any KRA or interview ruining the place. Maternity leave too long and work suffers at the cost of staff raising babies.

    Research institutes not have any work - pity that founders money gone down the drain. Top management generally failed individuals in second career.

    Money saved on deans and senior management travel can be used for increments. Excuse of not having money not believable under free reign of international travel and 5-star stay by management. Management jump at opportunity for free international vacation, when reality is they don’t even want to meet domestic clients!

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work - steal the money from school and junior staff

    Pros

    The atmosphere is excellent. Everyone is very friendly and helping. You get an overview of a business school experience.

    Cons

    There are hardly any cons of the internship experience. At times you have hefty work and I think it is still in the acceptance range.
