    I worked at GVK BioSciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A big name - GVK group
    Chemistry has some established clients, as GVK BIO competes in price.
    The good part is you can do anything under the sun as long as you justify it, scientists do not understand Marketing science, & sales do not understand science

    Cons

    Management - No clarity, no transparency, no process
    Hardcore autocracy
    Compromised values - often talk about Integrity, unfortunately it is not in practice
    Priority keeps changing, no information shared. Things are masked for outsiders once you are in... you realise

    Advice to Management

    -Please wake up, days are changed. Whimsical behaviour are not tolerated - even you are a big shot
    - Do a survey how many of your employees leave happily, why do they leave, what do they do once they are out from your company :-) you will have a jaw dropping experience.
    - If you throw stooges in air, you will also get hurt. Do not do anything which you do not like from your supervisors.

    Pros

    Is marketed as a highly professional company and one of the largest CROs in India. Has few good scientists with good pedigree and backgrounds. Some of them have international degrees and experience from developed markets.

    Cons

    They have several issues. They fudge glassdoor data by having the communications team create dummy glassdoor reviews. They hire senior people from industry with false expectations. Very high attrition in senior management team. The CEO is not from the industry and highly insecure. Cannot speak any relevant industry language with the customers. Severe lack of self-respect to management team members. Top recruiting firms recommend to avoid joining the company at all costs. Few key customers have left.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO from the industry and get a new business strategy and execution plan in place. Allow differences of opinion and diversity so that the best ideas win and not promote unprofessional behavior. Have a 10 yr plan in place or become obsolete.

    Salaries get early on last day of month.

    Cons

    Work Culture is bad, management is too worst, stupid managers, illogical pressure, no food and transportation, too much delayed final settlement, worst in all in all. Ratings I would give negative. Anyone joining will spoil their lives.

    Advice to Management

    Either managers are worst or management is worst. Follow ethics or future will be problem. Worst company I have worked with.
