I am working at Antz media right now.Its an SMO company (Internet marketing company) and yes Im in the marketing team 🙂 .I think its because my Boss Ramakanth sir,believes in “Men must think and machines must work” policy that even the office is furnished like a home(with bamboo couch and all).In the Interview day,I thought I was at the wrong place (in some one’s home instead of the office).But later I realized its part of the company philosophy :- “no pressure,no matter what”.
I had this short stint at Tata Tele services.My job was to sell EPBX (thats the thing used to connect places with more than 3 tele phone lines) to corporates.Nope it was not a big job as it just sounded.I was the guy you see at your door at home (doing door to door marketing).Except the home is replaced by companies but in corporate world I was the same door to door marketing guy.
I hated the job because of the target pressure in the start and the corporate politics (yes trust me,it was like MTV roadies style bitching at office).But later I got the trick and was starting to enjoy it too.
Like, I learnt that you must use whatever you have to get an impression. So I said goodbye to malayalam(language of kerala) introduction and hello to “hi im from tata tele services 😉 “.
Because my exams happened on November I said tata to TATA tele services :).
It was after November that I found Antz or Antz found me.And the work culture is opposite of what i experienced at Tata.I mean wouldn’t you feel good at work,if the thing called pressure is subtracted from the job?.My work at Antz deals with SMO or online branding and the work at kochigallan.com helped me get hired.
Its the Antz media,that does the online branding for Oberon mall,green pepper consultancy etc.The best thing about the job here is ‘learning’.Met with sr mangers at big brands like Ramada resorts,V guard etc (finally the Xenophobic in me is staging a goodbye).Hey thats Sree my senior at the Marketing room ( me behind the D90 camera 😀 ).
