Working in Aptara is not recommended to any experienced person, for fresher it is good to gain his/her experience. Teammates are not that of a class, you can find some goons working with you. Training some time happens for companies own benefits not for employees benefits. Job security is not there same as other private companies. Career growth depends only if you do buttering of your seniors. Salay appraisal are null, we did not get any salary hike from last three years. Travel facility is available with very high cost. Politics is there. Work environment is good you can work. Work-life balance is worst for production staff being a management employee I get some relief here. So, overall Aptara is now a worst company to work with.

Dislikes

No facilities for employee apart from salary.

Work

My work is quite good enough as far as I am getting new things to learn.

I like working in this department. I pre-edit the different journals. do XML coding.
Apart from that whoever person is willing to learn and do more like page make up etc, can easily ask for technical training. there are morning and evening and night shifts. You can even aks for your preferred shifts. One can take leaves stating the reason. Seniors understand. also in case if your particular department is closed or run out of business, you won't be fired. Instead you will be trained and made suitable for any other department. There are variety of food stalls for breakfat, lunch and dinner.

Dislikes

Only disadvantage is - no satisfactory increment. only 10 percent, or less.
Also no really exciting gifts from company. :(

There is nothing to like working here in this company, your career is in stake if you are working here. Even a poor admin fellow (though all are ill minded), if not satisfied with your dua-salaam & zii hujoori, can show you exit door. All top management people are sucking the employee, no perks, no appraisals. Whatever experience you have, whatever capabilities you possess there is no one to see that as entire people in the top management lacking ability. They gained their positions only because of foot licking capabilities. No appraisals since last 3 years. Every year people are forced to resign/given pink slips and with that money top managements people's appraisals take place.

No possitive points to say. All the benefits will go to the CEO, managers not to the ground level employees.

Dislikes

One of the worst company in India for any associate. They remove within a day if they don't have a project. No job security. Worst higher management people. Don't send or suggest anyone to this company. We have to go to the office on time and have to work 12 to 13 hours compulsory without of break also. Finally on the appraisal they will say what you did except your day to day work and you will get worst rating.

Work

A headache, you can't able to think about your family. All are money minded. You have to work more and finally, you will get nothing.

I have spent 11 years here. I was in Pearson ODC. My CSH was very nice, helpful, innovative, skilled person. I learnt a lot in his guidance. He was awesome!! Some of my colleagues are from various cultural backgrounds and we worked happily in collaboration.

Dislikes

Compensation is in several areas but growth is slow.

Work

I joined Aptara in Dec 2007, as QC Executive in El Hi 7 in flexible timing. I learnt a lot, my manager (KIG)was very nice and did my best under his guidance. I got opportuinity in Chandigarh as Production Manager. I left company in September 2006.

The company is open to innovation and readily adopts latest technology. Another plus point is that my colleagues come from various cultural background

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is too slow. The work pressure is very high. Sometimes, I have to work 16-18 hours straight in a day as I have to attend client calls in the evening and sometimes late into the night

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 operation.

Job security, growth, learning, work environment, work life balance are thing to look forward to when working here. I am part of a supportive team that produces high quality books for global client base.

Dislikes

Trainings, salary upraisals, politics and innovation are some factors I heard are not satisfactory.

Work

Usually my work comprises of planning and managing the project, from initiation to delivery which is much dependent on the team here. The projects require constant touch base with clients and query resolution whenever necessary.

This company is good for fresher. Do not work more than 1 year otherwise career will be spoil.

Dislikes

FPG department of this company is one of the worst department. There is no schedule of work, not fix wekend off. mainly during the peak month Dec to May manager of this department forced to employee for work 12 per day.he does provide any extra salary of over time. Experience of this work does not count in any other company. if any body want to join this company, join other department beside FPG.

The company is best for new comers, as employees get trained they leave the company due to low compensation. But you can learn quickly since there is continuous improvement policy exist.

Dislikes

Compensation and growth both are slow. The work pressure is very high, sometimes you need to work 12 to 14 hours in a day. Managers do not value individuals' strength and performances. You do receive appreciation emails but they mostly go unnoticed during appraisals.

Work

No comments.

The only thing I like is my colleagues.

Dislikes

The teamleaders and the people above them will not value the individuals.
Partiality
Will call for interview and will not care about the interview candidates. The manager will simply take leave on that day and the candidate will have to suffer

Work

I've spend 2 years in Aptara. We can't develop any of our skills or not a platform to show our skills. Only thing I got is experience.
