As seen from outside, BS is a very reputed organization with a good product i.e. the newspaper that it publish.

Dislikes

Its a typical lala company, sometimes even worse than a lala company. In a lala company, employee has clarity as to whom he is working for and whom to keep happy. BS runs on external funding with no influence of its financiers. As a result revenue generation has never been an objective for BS. Everything is very flexible and too much open ended & usually kept so at will, for the purpose of flexibility to manipulate everything. HR is very very weak. Since BS is in publishing, people work in shifts. Working condition of support staff, working in shifts, is pathetic. There is no clear guidelines of regulations, for everything there is a tug of war. Never ever think of joining BS except for only & only editorial department. Only editorial department is valued and a little mature in BS, otherwise BS will not exist at all. If you seriously want to build a career and do something in life, stay miles away from BS. If you are nonsense loving risk seeking person with no liabilities and plenty of resources to keep your life running, if you belong to a very influential segment of the society, do stop for a while and enjoy a roller coaster ride into full madness at BS.

Work

There is a lots & lots of un-necessary re-work. Work is never complete and keeps extending. People in BS do not believe in completing, they believe in elongating and delaying.

Society perceives it, as a very good Company. The product i.e. its newspaper is a very good product that it publishes.

Dislikes

With about 15 years of time spent along with editors & generalists I have learned a little to say more in little words.
Working in Business Standard is a like hell for an Angel. and Its like a Heaven for Demons & devils. If you are a devil, you will enjoy wars, fire & nonsense bullshit inside. However if you find yourself to be an angel, you will really be in trouble.
People here do not like happy & smiling faces. They like sad, depressed, crying & defeated people who agree to be willful zombies ! You decide who you are.

Work

After seeing the world outside of BS and comparing with present company, I believe I should have switched at least 10 years earlier.

Business Standard is an employee benefits company, Although remunerations were not up to the mark but overall company is having an excellent work culture. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and always gave you chance to showcase you in front of management.
Management is very helpful.

Dislikes

There is nothing I don't like about Business Standard.
Only thing is the remuneration I got, otherwise everything was good.

Work

I was working in the International features department, my work is to sell advertisement slots to international companies present in India along with the coordination with embassies. Also to finalise the complete feature with the help of other people.

Well recognized publishing company

Dislikes

Its not at all a company. No where close even to a lala company. It really is a Circus. There is no concept of Management or leadership. They only have ringmasters to tame you to obey. They do not like happy smiling people ! They work towards turning employees into zombies !!

Work

They do not need to work. They run on external funding and having revenue is not at all any priority. People at BS are masters to push, elongate, stretch & convert simple tasks into complex projects & justify there being & salaries.

Total freedom at work. Job satisfaction. Enthusiastic teammates. Appreciation from top bosses.

Dislikes

No like or dislike. I just enjoyed working in BS

Work

Spinning out news stories out of the raw data of stock markets, companies balance sheets and economy data put up by various government agencies was a challenging job. I did it with lot of enthusiasm. Most data stories were page one flier.

Great learning experience, 100% job security, a great work environment with no office politics and a superb team.

Dislikes

Poor infra and very old technology. Lack of innovation at every level. The office lags even the basic amenities like a proper canteen.

Work

A very hectic schedule with about 11 hours of work. Not having enough people to carry out the daily work is normal at BS. I think that says it all.
