The company is archaic in its policies and processes. If you are ambitious and want to grow in your field, this is not the place for you.
There is clear demarcation and disconnect between senior management team and the on ground team and under the garb of collaboration, the pace of work suffers.

It was a bit hectic for the teacher as well as the students as the timings were from 8am to 2 pm and we have to take sessions continuously with just 2 breaks of 10 mins and one 20 min break. Otherwise the learning outcomes were great and ot was a great experience.

Work culture is formal, you get a lot of networking opportunities with English professors, trainers; work is simple : customer and process focused, but rate of pay is just Rs 140 an hour and 7-8 hours of work (7-10 days a month). this So those who depend on it full time - and will face disappointment and frustration.
Pros
Lots of training, networking opportunities, some paid travel, English speaking atmosphere and mutual respect.
Cons
Poor pay rate, lots of churn and turnover of staff, only part time work (1-2 days a week), management doesn't respond to queries nor prefers face to face interactions

Good Job Culture. Good service. I actually worked there while doing my MBA. British council is one of the top management who is running the IELTS TEST and we can work there as per our wish. We can put the slots or we can book the days in advance for the work. They will provide the centre. Really good atmosphere. The payments will be delayed for 2 months.

Had to be on toes. Man management. Punctuality. Good.Time management. Prioritizing. Socializing. Analytical mind. Don't say Yes when you want to say No. Reading between lines. Understanding Rules and Regulations. Interpretation. Implementing rules, procedures and practices more in spirit than in letters depending on circumstances..

I wish other in the technology had been as passionate about work as the MD himself, HR is good and helpful.
The management in the technology doesn't know technology and that is the biggest problem most of them should have been in HR or related fields.
