Productive and fun workplace

A typical work at day comes with some stress as it is a company that needs to produce numbers, we also have casual talks to to enjoy and brighten the mood. You get expose to a lot of experience making everyday a learning day.The management is very helpful and friendly and tries their best to befriend everyone as it is a big company and we find different types of people to work with and appreciate. The hardest part of the job is meeting the deadline as the company is constantly on a roll and engaging.

Pure disaster

Long hours, no respect of employees, no days off. No respect, no personal life.Just one advice, stay far from this company with poor ethics.Pay salary and commissions on time.

Was this review helpful?

it was target based.

There were fun times but we had to interact with irate prospects a lot. there were weekly and monthly targets as well as special incentives so rat race will be the precise word for it.

Pros

special performance incentives ranged from theatre tickets to trips abroad.

Cons

pressure to meet targets.
