    I have been working at John Keells full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent infrastructure, Alright Transport and neat and clean atmosphere.

    Cons

    Bias management , sexist attitude, Perverted Sr. managers, Irrelevant HR which is run by the management itself.
    Served for a year, overall was an alright place to work at. The management focuses more on the female gender then on there work. Last moment extra login requirement, extra working days every month without any overtime payout.
    Code of conduct only applies to executives not to management.
    Incentive structure not transparent and no explanation of anything just fingers pointed from one person to another. Promotions are pre-decided.

    Advice to Management

    Be an example for young executives to follow and focus less on the power-trip your designation brings you.

    Pros

    Good infrastructure, healthy and working environment and very nice people working at executive level.

    Cons

    Employees are not paid according to their caliber. Very bad style of external recruitment through consultancies. Okay okay transport! but not that good. Support of john keells needs to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Just don't go according to stats.. It would be better if top management interact with people working at executive level.
