    I worked at Zarca Interactive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can not even think about it...

    Cons

    >>Worst management team where religious partialities,bonds in which they take our certificates,where work hours quantity matters and no quality
    >>They won't pay you extra when you work more than 9 hours but they will definitely deduct money from your salary without intimating you for late coming.
    >> If general people take break they are on your head but when their people do all the stuffs 4 times a day religiously which is self understood here hardly 5 mins job girls do gossip in washroom by using this as excuse and takes 20-25 mins break in one go that is invisible to them.
    >>They have no responsibilities towards specially who works late and stay late in office, they only worried about their delivery of product.
    >> Worst process in team and top level management is cherry on the cake, every day they change the requirement and made employees work till late in office.
    >> Wow face and excuses !!! at the time of appraisal they have 100s of reasons for not doing your appraisal in the annual cycle.
    >> HR policies, It feels like a jail they have stupid policies made up of their own that have nothing in the favour of employee.
    >>Stupid ZSC events who organised every year POTLUCK , means here they again made employee to cook for them and they will eat like a king.
    >>Manager and HR are so unprofessional, they use literally sign language and eye contact when they both are together infront of some employee.
    >> When you join forget about your company bonus because after giving this they made you 6 months wait and if you don't they will revert your salary and ask you to return the money.
    >>If you join this company, please please forget about your family, friends and your personal life you just need to take care of their product (like a baby) and deliver it(employee) like a pregnant woman.
    >>Last but not the least it just an advice please hire people from your community only because you guys really don't deserve out of that.
