    Pros

    Amazing people, diverse business, some great ideas.

    Cons

    Weak leadership, silo mentality, too many points of focus. Business behaves like an organisation much bigger than it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear what you want to be as a business, then stick to it. Don't try to be all things to all people. Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    -Fast growing company
    -Able to learn a lot about procurement and eSourcing
    -Very flexible scheduling
    -Very open and trustworthy work environment

    Cons

    The pay was not fantastic and responsibilities were not well laid out. The company is growing quickly and does not have a firm foothold on job responsibilities. I expect that, with time, the company will get more organized into a firm corporate structure that they are currently lacking in.

    Pros

    Hard working people with good intentions.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, egos of senior staff and other coworkers, no processess or procedures that are of value, and one main account in the United States. MM4 is a tool and not a long term cure for Xchanging profitability in procurement.

    I have been working at Xchanging full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros.....

    Cons

    No leadership, No communications, Egos of managers who believe their position is more grandeur than it is, Hire people who feel they need, then don't have the roles or the dynamics in the jobs to test peoples skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, take note of employee surveys and don't think because you are a manager everyone is beneath you. Think about this....When you are in a toilet cubicle the person in the cubicle next to you is the same as you, so treat people equally and do away with this archaic view from the 60s and 70s. The clue is in the name of the company...Changing!

    Pros

    Nice and challenging work
    Provides training
    Onsite opportunity for few
    Good for graduates

    Cons

    Salary for graduates is in the range of 5000 Rs ( 100 $ ) per month
    No Canteen, hence no breakfast or snacks
    No access to sites like linkedin or any professional sites
    No Lunch or Dinner facility( except when new people join and are in training)
    No Canteen around 1KM radius
    NON AC operated Office, hence hell lot of mosquitoes for night shift. On weekends, you will be stormed by entire office mosquitoes( of all floors).
    No work life balance. Will have to work only in fixed shift timings as it is located in a remote location( 15 kms from city). Worst part is that building is located 1 Km away from Shimoga Bhadravati Main road. Hence you need walk for 20 mins when coming by own transport.
    Office is next to a chemical factory and you get horrible smell as if you are in hell.
    Will put you on bond for atleast 2 to 3 years even if you are experienced ( bond of 40000 to 60000 Rs, and you need to submit all of your marks cards).
    FAKE picture of this office is given to UK office clients and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for your employees, provide basic facilities like food and then think of innovation
    Keep standards in salary

    Pros

    Good experiance on how not to engage in a professional manner towards clients. A higlighting experiance to see how unhappy clients are with the arragnements

    Too many lies, dishonest senior managers, micromanaging middle managers in order to polish their own egos. openness policy needed whith clients. Too much time wasting chasing the small low hanging fruit rather than taking a more stragegic approach
