    Pros

    Micromanagement if you like to be looked over every minute and all your emails and Internet activity seen. No Pros in that.

    Owner only cares about his growth not employees. It was a great place to work until current owner brother passed away.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees respond better when they are shown gratitude. Stop being cheap.

    Pros

    Decent health and dental for a contracting company.
    The payroll department was very helpful. They are very hands off (although maybe a little too much)

    Cons

    Slow to respond to requests.Not very supportive. They lowballed me in starting pay rate and were slow to bring me up to correct rate

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees / contractors they are your representative at the customers site if they are unhappy it will reflect poorly on you

    I worked at Makro Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing noteworthy that can be mentioned.

    Cons

    Plenty of them. Was a Business Developer over there in their Hyderabad office and did handsomely well. Got 8 customers(pharma, biotech & medical devices companies) from the US in one year. Got an RFP from a huge Pharma giant which was hijacked by my manager and shown to the CEO as his work. Did not get any recognition at all. Pathetic place to be in. They were getting all employees to sign a one year bond(last heard, it was 18 months bond). No work-life balance at all. You will be reprimanded if you go even 5 mins late to work and your half day's salary will be cut! No PF concept in this company. All in all, this company sucks and better be careful before you join.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant of who works and who does not! Reward employees when good work is done. Keep a tab on managers because employees do not leave companies, they leave managers.
