    Pros

    It is a good job if you are looking for something short termed but not for a long term position. if you can not meet the expectations they will let you go but they will not train you correctly and are not reliable

    Cons

    they are not organized, the company seems to think that people will know what to do with out training. they don't pay correctly. Last of all and most important if you think you are going to shut your branch down soon don't bother hiring people to work for you.

    Advice to Management

    train your employees and be available for them. If you have a position to execute, do so. Don't say you are going to be in one place and then be in another.

    Pros

    no pros, is not even a job...run away as quick as possible

    Cons

    The company is run like in the middle age, with slaves and masters. Feel like if you get your salary with 20 days delay or not at all. .No management,no strategy, just a king/god with some slaves working for him .Nothing is done according to lwas or regulations.Staff is spied with camera everywhere against any privacy law. Cannot believe such Company could still exist in 2016.No respect for any human being. To progress in the careers you must be Tamil and relative of the owner. Hundreds of relatives are employeed , doing nothing and getting higher salaries. Middle management is scared to tell the true to the owner so nothing is changing and he believe to run an happy family..

    Advice to Management

    close the company

    Pros

    Nice colleagues to work with, overall it is a good place for entry level career.

    Cons

    This place is really horrible, no training is provided here they offer you the job and let you jump all the way by yourself fighting with their customers and the stupid system they have which is all managed from India, not even here in the U.S.
    The management are very stupid and arrogant, they don't know even what are they doing.
    All the time they speak with their own Tamil language, very discriminative environrment against women.
    All the easy jobs they give it to their own people from same ethnicity.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to advance in the U.S you must have professional people to run this business, and don't rely on stupid people coming from the jungle, and acting as if it is a family company.
