It feels like working with friends
we managed to laugh, even though the deadlines are so constricted.
teamwork was the key, for us to succeed in meeting the tight deadlines.


and also, even though we are a company composed of various nationality, the culture barrier is not visible, as we are communicating and working great.
Pros
friendly workplace
Cons
far from my home country

Amazing work space for maximum exploitation of self developed and instinctive skills.
Motivate is a listed Organization which allows employees to explore their maximum capabilities and work within a healthy work space. Motivate keeps up the meaning to its name in all sense.

Management culture is appalling
If you're in journalism for the terrible pay and bad management - you'll get it in spades here. Apply with caution.
Things seem fun and exciting until your fun and exciting day is 12 hours long with no constructive feedback and the assumption you'll work overtime because management cannot manage their own time well.
Pros
fun, exciting things to try
Cons
long hours, bad pay, poor management

Excellent work atmosphere.
The work atmosphere is friendly with some degree of flexibility with regard to timings. On a typical day work would start at 8.30 am. Most of the work is done via email. The hardest part of the job was collecting the advertisements on time and ensuring printability with reference to technical specifications and content specially for publications with weekly or daily deadlines. The atmosphere is a relatively relaxed right after a deadline is met and the publication is at print. It was particularly enjoyable when magazines sales were achieving or surpassing targets and it would be an occasion for a morale boosting team lunch or outing. The Family day organized annually was also well organized with attention to detail and keeping in mind the different age groups in attendance. All in all a good experience.

Productive and Fun place to work
A typical day at work would start with replying emails and sorting queries online, assisting customers on phone and those who walk in. Check the promotional details and data enter them. At the end of the day generate the reports related to sales.

Management was amazing, they know how to get the employee satisfaction.


Co-workers were supportive and helpful.


The hardest part of the job for me was the conveyance to work.

The most enjoyable part were group meetings and customer calls.

Fun and scope to learn & grow
In my role, punctuality was most important on a typical day besides routine work. I learnt all about publishing industry here and was given the opportunity and encouragement. I had good relation with all co workers. The hardest part of the job is lack of proper internal communication. The enjoyable part (in long term), is that the company does appreciate hard work / sincerity and do care for their employees. To sum up, it is a nice place to work.
Pros
Fun place to work once trust is established with hardwork
Cons
Disparity - well this is difficult to explain unless verbal.

A great company to start
Motivate was the first place to give me an opportunity once I graduated and upon getting my PMP credentials they even allowed me to move to another department so I would have access to utilize my new skillset.
The team of people you work with over there are enthusiastic and fun loving and always ready to put in their best effort.
Pros
great people
Cons
lack of incentive
