My experience

Good company to work but I see lot of local politics within the organization , too much favoritism to South Indian in the organization and also people at top think they are god !

Tough workplace

Tough workplace full of smart people. Hard to influence management who seem set in their ways. Most people cannot handle the pressure. Long working hours.

Productive and fun place to work

My experience at work: - ensuring all transactions are recorded correctly into system (ORACLE) - reviewing all contracts / supporting documents and ensuring accuracy that the terms and conditions are fully complied with - check all shipping doxs are correctly issued as per LC and ensure doxs are negotiated promptly. - check with banks for all payments are received Learning how to use different kind of softwares implemented for payments to be entered through the in-house system to the Treasury for processing instead of preparing vouchers and finding signatories to approve the payments. All were done on-line We have the Indian culture as most of our top managers are mostly Indians. We always have problems finding signatories for our payments / transactions. The most enjoyable part of the job - we have the opportunities to speak with our colleagues all over the world.

Pros

the company usually provides bi-weekly lunch talk during lunch time

Cons

working long hours even on Public holidays.

good company - but no structure, your life will depend on your boss

good company with very talented and visionary people in management. However, the companies culture is too old school, extremely hierarchical with out any diversity. While the company grew fast, the leadership and hence the culture has not evolved with time.

Work is interesting with a wide gamut. Most roles have a high impact on the organisation due to the lean structure. However, there is a lack of respect from senior colleagues.

Pros

Decent pay and benefits, Strong impact of roles, Great learning opportunities

Hierarchical culture, lack of employee diversity
