Netscribes' Review by Employees

As I did with all our previous reviews, I depended on online resources collecting feedback from employees working at Netscribes. Here is a screenshot of how employees perceive Netscribes.

Netscribes Ratings

Most of the respondents recommend Netscribes for the following reasons.

1) Internships

It’s a good place to work while you study. Interaction with department heads and executives strengthens knowledge about various related subject-matters and the interns are able to see to how it will be like working in a similar or same firm once they begin their career course.

2) Work-from-Home

Depending on the work profile, employees have the option to exercise work-from-home conditions, provided they have prior approval from the seniors. This way the working time remains flexible.

3) Working Environment

Honestly, the feedback respondents are undecided over this factor. While some believe the working environment is negative and unproductive, another group of people believes in the exact opposite. This perspective is something that will differ with every person.

4) Freedom of Project Management

Some respondents said that employees have the freedom to execute projects on their own terms but whether this feature is available to every member staff is unknown. However, we also found that the HR manager is much on a low-scale and there is grave mismanagement sometimes, which could be why the freedom to manage projects as the designated person likes is given.

5) Training Events

Sometimes Netscribes conducts training events and seminars for employees and popular opinion says it’s a good addition by the company.

Some negative feedbacks were:

  • the working environment is fraught with politics; culture of nepotism
  • salary is sometimes not proportionate with the work profile
  • senior employees aren’t friendly towards newcomers and juniors
  • management is non-communicative with staff
  • gender discrimination
  • fewer growth prospects
  • there is no job security (on-the-spot firing seems common)
  • lack of work-life balance

It won’t be wrong to say that the balance tilts more on the negative side. Current and ex-employees had more negative feedback than a positive one; glad that their stint at the company is over.

A lot of people advised that Netscribes is not advised for career-minded people but suitable for freshers looking for initial work experience.

Interview Process at Netscribes

As per data collected from current and ex-employees, the interview experience at Netscribes is fairly positive. Most of the applications were made online and on a scale from 1 to 5, the rating is 3, which is a positive trend.

Netscribes Interview

Data Source

The interview process takes anywhere between 1 day to 3 weeks, depending on the job profile and interview stages.

Usually, I found, there are three interview stages.

  • HR Round – Conducted by company officials, this round is about knowing your overall experience and skills and understanding your suitability within the company. You might be asked to attempt an aptitude test.
  • Case Study – You are given a case study on the basis of which you have to create PPT. You have to show analysis and logical skills effectively. This section has both subjective and objective questions. You might be asked questions about your profile.
  • Client Interview – This is an interaction with the client or very senior personnel and checking your skill suitability. You will be checked on networking and communication skills.
  • Telephonic Round – This is an added round but can happen to some of you. The telephonic round is like the ‘final’ assessment where doubts are cleared and queries asked.

Depending on these feedbacks, it seems a lot of focus is given on the case study / PPT section because this is where they adjudge your real skills. Be well prepared for this round.

An offer letter is extended soon after the third or fourth round.

Caution

This review is for informational purposes only. You shouldn’t decide whether to work at Netscribes or not based on this. Please do your own research.

  6. Hi Avadhut,

    I am an average B.Com graduate. I am currently doing EPGBM & EMBA a dual benefit program from Kazian school of Management. Post this I have plans to do CMA from IMA-US. Is it worth?

  7. Hi Mr.Avadhut,

    I am a 32 year old 2nd class B.Com graduate with 6 plus yrs of work experience in back office & BPO process related jobs in Accounts receivable & payable functions only. I have been an average & poor performer in maths in school. I scored well in 12th standard Accountancy but performed poorly in B.Com. Currently I am doing a dual degree course from Kazian School of Management i.e EPGBM + EMBA in financial management. Now I want to get into core accounting / finance jobs where I can handle & manage books of accounts right from book keeping to finalisation, budgeting, forecasting, FP&A & costing etc. Very soon I will be joining as a Finance Manager for a declined salary package in a small local service company which luckily for me is not a BPO again. I will be handling receipts /payments, vendor management & costing etc. I think I got something with which I can be satisfied for some time atleast. From past 2 years I have been intrigued towards foreign courses like CIMA, ACCA etc & mainly the US based IMA’s CMA course because of its short term 2 part exam but all these are quiet costly. I need your advise on how to go forward & will CMA-US be the right choice for me?

    • Hi Avadhut,

      My long term career goal is to become a Finance Manager & manage certain key areas of Finance like Budgeting, Forecasting, FP & A etc at a higher level & I want a globally recognised certificate as I aim to work in some foreign country probably in the middle east so I think CMA which is a short duration course & less exams will be suitable for me to complete & move ahead. What do you say?

      Reply
      • Yes. You can think of CPA too which is widely recognized in US, UK and Europe.

      • Thanks Avadhut.

  8. Hi Mr Avdhut
