Very less pay and compensation

Very less pay and compensation here. Good work life balance. You will not get any bench on Lucknow location.Appraisal process is very late here, which doesn't depends on rating.

Managers are very supportive

Often I have to collaborate with different team leads while working on different analysis. All of them are very supportive. But I don't feel like I am being fairly compensated.


Senior management is supportive, you will work on critical tasks, collaboration with different teams will allow you to explore new areas and develop understanding


Short breaks, shift timings, compensations

Productive and fun place

The issue is in salary satisfaction. It's been 2 years that had I joined and I feel this was my worst decision taken ever.Experienced candidates please don't joinIt's a bpoThey monitor how many times you go to washroom and take breaks.Promise something else and gave something else which gives a complete feel of working in bpo.You do not have self respect here..Employees treated as robots not humans..Fake HR'sPoor management, don't have coordination within the departments.There is no job satisfaction.At the time of interview they will say it will be a technical profile when you get into it understand the realty.


Work from home and shift allowance.


no appraisal, rude managers and south Indian dominated.

Relaxed Company

A kind of company to settle. Hikes are very less. Work life balance is too good. No pressure in completing the tasks. No career growth not new learning in projects can be expected

Mediocrity at its best

Only work here if you have no ambitions and future hopes left, the company hires freshers and then there are pathetic appraisals and worst pay possible. Salary is sometimes not enough for basic necessities, avoid as much as possible. Good place for you if you are a manager and want to spend rest of your life here.


Job Security


Bad pay, Outdated technologies and no respect for talent

Worst company to work.Full of pressure.They will not even understand what problem you are facing and why is the delay.

Worst company to work with.Senior employees will try to suppress you.Not even understand what the problems we are facing and why is the delay.They will not even wait till your work is completed.They will be good till appraisal cycle and when the appraisal period comes they will start blaming you that you are not doing anything.
