Shared by Diet Sabya, a screenshot read, “Hi, I worked at the talent management agency as an artist manager for 2 years. Touted as India’s number one agency with an extensive clientele of Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor etc. The founder was accused during the #metoo movement and was removed following the controversy (which is a story for another day) Deepika Padukone’s lead agent was the most rudest and unprofessional of the lot. She also used to head the celebrity management division. From being rude to new employees to harassing or completely ignoring others i’ve seen it all in less than 6 months.”
The message continued, “The toxic work culture is the reason for high attrition rate. We had a bring your family to work day which was essentially to see the background of the employees and determine who all #fitthefam. Not just employees but even talents from humble beginnings were made fun of by the “senior management.”
Another message that was a reply to the above story by Diet Sabya, read, “Omg. Yes! I worked there for 2 years and I was sexually harassed every day and spoken to very aggressively if I chose to call out said misconduct. The women there are a joke to other women. My boss was Sonam’s manager at the time and she is the reason I had clinical depression that lead to thoughts of suicide. They don’t even let people attend funerals in peace!”
