    Pros

    you will have a good life as an executive if you like to pick boss's kids from school or get his new home plumbing fixed or arrange tutor for his kids .. in return expect good work ratings . It is a family environment, who cares about business.

    Cons

    tolerating Indian executives in US when they start motivation lectures on company culture

    Advice to Management

    no point, they dont listen, perhaps don't understand most of the english conversation.

    I worked at Reliance Globalcom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much to recommend this place. The employees get along well for the most part particularly considering the challenges and lack of resources provided by senior management.

    Cons

    The culture created by India is all about being cheap and as bare bones as possible. Bills don't get paid, services are suspended by vendors for non-payment. Not many rewards.

    Advice to Management

    If control be wrestled from leadership in India and culture in the US can be allowed to grow by taking over certain functions such as finance. Company needs to conduct itself as if integrity and ethics matter.

    I have been working at Reliance Globalcom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are great to work with, and minimum overtime

    Cons

    Leadership is the worst that I have ever experianced. Processes are only inplace to be broken. Indian leadership feels employees are expendable. We have been told in company meetings that any job that can be worked in India will be moved over and this does show in company moral. Bills are never paid so the company is always having vendors shut off service. Employees are expected to lie to the customer until service it turned back on which often takes 2 weeks. People never stay for more then 2 years due to bad management

    I have been working at Reliance Globalcom full-time

    Pros

    Free soda? Free coffee? Wow, what else? A paycheck? I liked the HR company Trinet, it comes with a convenient website. Bottom line .... it's a job.

    Cons

    No raises for over 6 years; nothing since Reliance purchased Yipes.

    Most of the computers and productivity software is 10+ years old. Get used to asking people to save documents into an older format.

    Company charges for parking - currently $960 per year.

    No formal training whatsoever - company relies on vendor presentations and informal training cobbled together by coworkers.

    No conference attendance with exception of sales force, who attend conferences in a sales capacity.

    No annual holiday party (or summer get together). Some years a quickly planned lunch at a local restaurant is sponsored. Sometimes the employees throw together a pot luck lunch.

    Lay-offs once or twice per year over past 5 years

    There are promotion opportunities if you are productive, have a good work ethic, and are in the right place at the right time. There is no formal or documented path to promotion. All promotions are made by the management team based on their perceptions, biases, and personal judgement.
