    Kanand is an most ethical organization I have ever worked for. They really care for their employees. They have very good control on client relationship. Top management from CEO are involved in the welfare of every employee. Best place to work.

    Cons

    Yet to find ! Management has always been supportive therefore hard to find a con as yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    I have been working with KAnand for almost 5+ years, started my career as a recruiter and gradually climbed up the ladder. Working here is fun.
    Company look for the ownership qualities, how you deliver is your lookout.

    Cons

    Dont work here if you're scared of competition or failure.

    Advice to Management

    Adaptability to change lacks

    I have been working at KAnand full-time

    Pros

    none.. there is nothing good about this company

    Cons

    I have never seen these kind of management and politics anywhere. Cheap CEO, Manager’s and their mentality. CEO can't even properly talk to any person, he always try to show to that he knows everything. There is no growth in this company and they don't have any direct clients with them but they try to show as they have hell lot of clients. No incentives, nothing. If you work there for more than a year there won’t be any appraisal done by them. The manager only hire female employees and uses them, he makes their life hell. When you leave the company after giving a proper notice, they will not provide you a relieving letter. Manager always target towards male employees to through them our but don’t do the same with female employees.

    Advice to Management

    Shut your business and stop spoiling the careers of people..

    I worked at KAnand full-time

    Pros

    NONE at all to be honest and blunt.

    Cons

    SO MANY that it cannot be covered in one page even. Worst CEO and senior management I have seen so far in my professional career. No professional etiquette, no empathy for its employees, they don't want employees, they want workers and slaves, pay is horrible, incentive is even worst, highly non-cooperative and not supportive, if dont mind getting paid later and happy with a meager incentive then go ahead and join, career opportunities are none, benfits-only their benefits matter, work/life balance-least bothered about employee's life.

    Advice to Management

    Please shut it down and stop spoiling careers, you may not care but others do care.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, too lenient administration, free salary for the tenure you are there, no work pressure, can take any number of breaks as you want.

    Cons

    For a workplace as small as Kanand there is to much politics going on behind the scenes amongst the employees and so called "Higher" management. You might be praised by 1 employee on your face and the same employee might curse about you to others behind your back.

    Coming to work, there are hardly any clients the company has namely 3-4 but will portray as if there are lot of big clients. The salary is not paid upto mark and as per the experience that you might get anywhere else. Compared to the salary and clients in hand you are expected to perform beyond excellence which highly impossible.

    Kanand works mainly on tier 2 clients to add to that there is no hold on any clients no matter what but they still want closures like a lottery machine. Feedbacks from clients are done on email bases, not even over the phones. There is no HR team, no marketing team n no Kanand team so to speak. Team leads are appointed for the namesake and every employee has a grudge with another over something. To top it all the incentive structure is no good at all . It is the lowest incentive you'll ever get anywhere in the market today so be careful before you enter.

    There are no amenities whatsoever. No food facility, no tea or coffee nor snacks, no night allowance, if you want anything you are expected to make tea in a microwave, C'mon people!!.

    Coming to the higher management, there are namely 3 main people handling the recruitment but none of them have what it takes to go and ask for the feedback directly to the client. If you and ask "why is there no feedback?" the only consistent answer you will always get is "we cannot ask client for feedback, it might jeopardize the relation with them and we might loose the client". In the lifetime of 10+ years of Kanand they are stuck on the same clients with no new clients and no direct clients nor have they tried to acquire new clients.

    Advice to Management

    I could go on with the cons but it will not be enough.. To management (if there is any) advise is please change your thinking to start with, change your incentive structure secondly (dont just say you will,, actually do it), treat your employees like valuable assets not work slaves that you usually do,

    And above all to the people who might read this before going to Kanand.. well DONT GO there, its a waste of your talent and personality and if you still want to go there well.. your funeral !!
