Not so good company
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaSeptember 6, 2018
* Directors are coding on small projects , rather than taking care of the team
* Lot of people are getting inside through back door entries while others have to give 10-15 interviews
* You will see lot of people unnecessary getting aggressive

Good place to work and learn
Director - Talent Acquisition (Current Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraJuly 1, 2018
Its a highly process driven organisation. Since its a IB, it is highly regulated. The work culture is good with good opportunity to learn.Flexibility is something which is missing in MS. The hardest part of the JOB is the many regional approvals that you have to take at every step of the work which makes you feel lack of empowerment.
Pros
Respect for employees
Cons
Lengthy approval process
