Dislikes

We all know how service based organisation work would be but I wouldn’t mention anything wrong about the organisation but it’s all the top people who sits in the ladder who doesn’t know any tech stuff and treat you like shit. Yes I had very bad experience with my manager named Murugesh Radhakrishnan who is a guy treats people like shit and who doesn’t know any tech stuff but behave as if he knows everything. Backstabbing, want to work 7 days a week and the pressure he gives for the employees .. despite doing everything he wouldn’t be happy such a coward. Please don’t work under such person for god he shouldn’t be working because of him lots of well equipped skills person deliverables is getting spoiled.
