  1. 18 years experienced, got opportunity to lead the function and a higher position leave in less that 3 years. Not satisfied with the organisation or organisation not happy?

    Employee not satisfied or organisation not happy, happens and it is set back to both. But similar trend in multiple organizations?

  2. Being an ex employee of GSK,…can only say that we had very very bitter experience in her tenure,…she being the head of HR at that time,…did not care about humans working for the company for past so many years putting their blood & sweat,…she along with another incompetent person from Sales,…Mr. Anil Iyer decided to compensate the profit of the organisation by taking jobs of 65-70 employees.
    According to them the best way to show profit of an organisation is to reduce the resources (Humans specially) & continue the show. People with such negative attitude would always spread negativity wherever they go & damage the reputation of the organisation which is very hard to build.
