Work environment



I have mostly been working in USA and Singapore, and only recently took a full time job in India.

These are the things I did not like:

Have to work 2 to 3 Saturdays a month.

Lunch break is only 30 minutes.

I have to become confirmed, until then, notice period is only one day.

Pressure from management to attend company picnic on Sunday.

Provide no training on the software (SAP) that I am working with.

Employees stand up whenever management visits.

Is this typical of Indian companies?

I am optimistic about India's economy, but I am disappointed by management lack of respect for employees.

I have only been with this company 4 months, and am wondering if I should look for another job in India. Perhaps I should stay and get experience with SAP before trying to go abroad.

Any suggestions?
