Work place has a nice environment.

Good work environment. Learned how to deal with customers, to correct the mistake at the end of the day. Management is bad. Co-workers are very co-operative. The hardest part is working in 3 different shifts, other wise its kool.

Having good working culture and working atmosphere

EXL is a good outsourcing company and providing 100% quality assured works to their clients. Every morning 9:30 we are starting our duty and finishing at 6:30 Management people are conducting town hall meeting twice in a year for listening employees problems and giving proper solutions for same. My company was just like our home colleagues have good relations with each others. Job contains different problems but we were overcome by continuous learning. The main thing is we can take decision in a complex situation and managers are approving with appropriate comments. Company is just like a college means that company's cultural committee conducting annual day, annual sports day, celebrating festivals with colorful games/foods etc. hence we are thinking its a home and have very much healthy interactions with colleagues.

Pros

Free meals, Free Transportation

Cons

Less Salary package
