    Pros

    Good job profile but bad colleagues are ruining it. Zacks have to stay away from them.

    Cons

    There are some recent losers joined from another research company from Kolkata, Netsc.......we have to stay from them as they are thrown away from those companies and hence joining Zacks. They have shown poor attitude and very bad performance during their tenure and spoiling work environment here. People with exp of 2-3 years are the worst from that company.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop taking people from that company, its ruining us overall.
