[Resolved] Brainstorm Force — Unethical practices
a) HR Manager is over-smart, not aware about current situations in the company.
b) The number of days ...the leave you take... Your salary will be deducted for that much days...In Short ... No holidays.
c) Employee's basically freshers are forced to submit their original copy of academic degree certificates for One year (ILLEGAL Activity). Freshers work under tremendous pressure after submitting the all degree certificates which is there whole & sole life time achievement.
d) Freshers needs to make valid BOND ...if employee leaves before completing 1 year...The company don't provide any such certified courses in-house training... if they are providing any training then they should mention the respective employee that how much it costs for the same in the market. Based on this cost the the bond should be made. Also the company doesn't shares any thing about revenue flow..how much annual Profit /Turn over they get every year. Generally these things an interviewee (generally fresher) should ask before signing a bond
KINDLY NOTE: Kindly note that no employer can bond any employee by any bond, the legal system of India (Refer Article 19... Labour Act)
d) During interview they will tell you ... that they have branch office in United States of America. But in real they only have server facility in US to store online /company data.
e) Also refer the other reviews of this company on Glassdoor. At this time 5 reviews are available Out of them 2 are fake uploaded by the company people.

Aug 24, 2014Brainstorm Force Customer Care's response I'm Sujay Pawar and I co-founded Brainstorm Force. First of all, I understand - this person is Viraj Soni and not some nileshbtalele (Come on dude, be a man. Don't hide behind fake names) I can tell this, as one of my personal objective with Brainstorm Force is to create a company I, myself would LOVE to work at. I work VERY closely with almost everyone (we're handful 30 - 40 people company) and directly with the people who I think have good potential but underperform. I interviewed Viral Soni, selected him. He directly reported me & worked on some challenging projects we're working on. Prior to his selection: - This person was given a clear explanation of what does a bond of a year contain. - A time of about two weeks after his selection to take appropriate decision. - A personal discussion after a week from his joining data whether he is comfortable with things and would like to continue his employment. During his employment tenure: - He went through "Employee Development Plan" TWICE (for those who underperform) - Was almost fired several times - for being rude & and argumentative - possessing bad soft skills (In short - not a good person to work with) - Apologized and pled not to fire. And Finally: - Absconded, without any notice at all. Didn't even follow a general notice period or do any discussions about it. Now - let me address all of his concerns. a) HR Manager. = Thanks for this feedback. I take a note of it. b) No holidays. = This is a bizarre concern. Let me elaborate our holidays policy here shortly - 1. Here's the Calendar of Holidays we have in 2014 - https://cloudup.com/cI386oGsJwY 2. Employees can have 2 paid leaves every month So, that make about 36 paid leaves in a year. c) Bond = For employees like Viraj Soni who abscond after completing their free training and gaining valuable experience, we do ask for a commitment of just one year in terms of a service agreement. We take efforts to elaborate this in very much details prior to the joining and give a sufficient time to make a decision. d) Exit with a Bond Breakage. = Employees can surely exit with a bond breakage if they wish to. However to recover the expenses incurred in the training and the losses due to a premature resignation, we have a standard & simple policy that asks for 1 to 3 months salary. We're well aware of all the legal acts and we adhere, respect & follow them. d) Office in United States of America. = No, we don't. Sincere Regards, Sujay Pawar.
