Stated Vs Meant


Just have a look into Kaps post as well.

I was munching this forward for a long time.. now it is time to release.

Some of the slogans / motto of top IT companies and what they imply (from an ex-employee's perspective).

COMPETITIVE SALARY - We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.

JOIN OUR FAST-PACED COMPANY - We have no time to train you.

CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE - We don't pay enough, to expect that you'll dress up.
MUST BE DEADLINE-ORIENTED - You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day.
SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED - Some time each night and some time each weekend.
MUST HAVE AN EYE FOR DETAIL - We have no quality control.
APPLY IN PERSON - If you're old, fat or ugly, you'll be told the position has been filled.
NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE - We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality.
PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST - You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.

I think somebody from HR should have leaked these things out.

HAHAHA! Good one, Ram. I shudder at the "overtime" required bit - my wife would dump me, without batting an eyelid! :)

Ram, here'e more to your list... Nice posts from both you and kaps... Am gonna pull my HR's legs tomo !!!

We put customer needs first.
We don’t care for our employees.

We are action oriented.
We would throw you out of job in no time.

We treat everyone with dignity.
We only talk behind your backs.

Must be deadline oriented -

The HR will take their own sweet time to setup an interview and to send you an offer letter.

Good ones. I like the Salary part.!

As you are saying, HR takes hell a lot of time to process certain things.
