The company is open to innovation and readily adopts latest technology. I love the fact that I am a part of a team that markets reliable, high-quality products and has a global client base. As a result, I get to travel abroad, especially to the US and Canada. But on-site travel is completely dependent on your project and client’s location. Mine is a US based client and they have some offices in Toronto, hence I got a B1 visa quickly. Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various cultural backgrounds, and we work happily in collaboration. I also like the employee re-hire policy here.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. The work pressure is very high. Sometimes, I have to work 14-18 hours straight in a day as I have to attend client calls in the evening and sometimes late into the night. Managers do not value an individuals’ unique strengths, which is why I have to take back my suggestions most of the times. I do receive appreciation emails from my client, but they mostly go unnoticed during my mid-year appraisals. Also, there is no on-job training for freshers, hence senior folks like me have to guide them step-by-step, which is a pain sometimes.

Work

Generally speaking, my work is slightly challenging as I have to look after the entire product marketing and distribution life cycle as well as manage day-to-day yield operations. Pitching for my company as a marketer gets tiring and the task is slightly

Strong brand recall . You would carry yourself thru' most closed doors at ease with your company id card . Company culture highly inward looking and totally shut down on fresh ideas / positive inputs. There are coteries which exist where you have to enroll for survival . Teammates are mostly untrustworthy . Leadership team is represented by people whose business sense and practical outlook has been extinct since long and since the organization wants the old leadership to be at helm , the situation is moving from precarious zone to disaster zone , with management turning blind eye . There is vacuum for clear vision and direction as mostly the marketing and sales plans are light years away from reality . Politics is an aspect which is in a growth trajectory in this organization and is slowly eating away the legacy of this centurion organization.

Dislikes

Internal politics and nepotism.

Fortunately, the team I had was exceptional, hence the work seemed much better than what it actually was.

Dislikes

The digital wing of the company lacked vision and direction, which lead to employees feeling frustrated as we didn't know where we were headed. I believe they lacked understanding of how digital media functions, what sort of investments are needed and how or when those investments are likely to give returns. Apart from that, the work culture was very casual and unmindful, and it lacked structure overall.

Work

The work was fun, we were given freedom to ideate and take charge, but that was the doing of my immediate team leaders. The management was always ready to pull the plug, which they did, eventually

ABP is the leading Bengali news paper. At present job security is very poor there. Everybody is insecure Of their job. there.by

Dislikes

Job security Is very poor. No one is secure about their job. No training schedule for the fresher. H. R department is the worst Sept. Their main function is to create unstable working atmosphere. Always have to run to meet the target.

If you really want to learn and develop you should always prefer ABP. True Corporate culture and very strong HR department having real sort of authority. You will enjoy working there

Dislikes

Appraisal aspect is not that much good as other aspects are but again you are not going to get so much in other companies.
