MNCs vs Others
Respondents from BFSI and software sectors don’t attach much significance to company reputation. Manufacturing is most conscious.
India's seniormost (age >33 yrs) workforce is least bothered about stress in job content.
The more educated your workforce, the lower the importance of financial compensation. Higher educated professionals give importance to training, coaching and mentoring.

everything east of it

—Salaries and career growth are high on the Mumbaikar's agenda but not so much merit-based evaluations, which the eastern region is a strong votary of. NCR has low priority for training/mentoring and—surprise, surprise—financial compensation. All figures in the table are in per cent.
