People are safe who are good to Supervisor job is secondary

People are safe who are good to Supervisor job is secondary. Work in India is different compare to our oversea team. Those who have good relation with Supervisor can reach to highest level, work is secondary.

Conservative Culture

Finance teams five years ago were very regressive and the management was not mature enough to adapt the millennials. Cant comment on the changes in these five years so must be viewed from a fresh pair of lens
