    I worked at GVK BioSciences full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
