I have join BC management services Pvt Ltd company as a junior executive in AP. There is limited learning things in the company. No proper training team who could help to new joiner to learn. This is not a good place to career growth. Discrimination is there but company shows they do equality for all. Way of working is not flexible.

Dislikes

Not good environment in career growth, Very less opportunity to promote, Not a very good Hike any increments, Deducted transport charges, small cafeteria , Discrimination with the employee but they try to show case equality. Not easy to implement idea. Not supported if any one want to do any good things for the company. Higher post managers can leave office early. Not a flexible of break timings, Unnecessary work pressure, Not a good company for work in terms of career growth, Flexibility of work , Now they are not giving any transport facility also. Doing cost cutting on every stage but its for only lower employee not for higher post like manager and Regional lead and Team Lead. Hectic, Boring work also there

Work

Hectic, Boring, and politics are there at every stage

Apart from a good work-life balance, there is not much to appreciate about. Yes, they do give slightly higher salary than market (Warning: It's a trap!).

Dislikes

Biased approach in everything. If you have self respect, do not join here on a Contract basis be it a third-party or any other means. Also, you have to complete your work hours strictly. It doesn't makes any difference if you have completed your tasks early in a day or have kept them pending for another week. With such an environment, forget about adding new skills; very soon you might lose grip on your current expertise as well.

Work

Work culture is fine. People can talk to any one any time. The core focus is not on developing human assets and revenue, but on being in top rankings on useless Business Ratings.

Loads of Learning experience and doing online courses; fairly good work atmosphere; women-friendly;

Dislikes

Average salary; growth opportunities average; minimal increment; management never asks the person leaving about the reasons and neither offers a suitable package for the resource not to leave/ not good retention policies; even tea/coffee has to be purchased by staff; fear of re-structuring looming large every 2-3 years.

Too slow Organisation feels as if you are working in same British Colonial era. Projects are started and scrapped too often due to externally hired consultants army in council. Internal talent is not promoted within Organisation. Nepotism , favouritism and corruption are widespread across Organisation. No respect for performers

Slow and corrupt Organisation

Work

Hectic and without any results
