    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Pune (India)

    I have been working at Tata Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company (for above average performers)
    Less work load
    Good opportunities if working in Commercial Vehicle segment

    Cons

    Higher management not ready to take calculated risk, to help business improve
    NO whistle-blowing policy: every information you share with HR or top boss gets dictated to your boss!
    Many old employees (been here long enough) have gone into comfort zone, and hence difficult for company to get many new things done
    Company infected with nepotism. HR rules very weak, and too much power to HoDs.
    Company benefits are out-dated
    Company focus is shifting from Employee-oriented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have your priorities right, identify your actual customer, don't restrict your vision to your own specialization - learn and improvise.
    Don't go cheap with policies, and trying to "save" pennies from employees; happy employees can help create better products.
    During these tough times of company, bring up the talented employees (talent pool schemes) to take up important projects, rather than saving money by stopping talent pool schemes.

    I have been working at Tata Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Great place to learn automobile engineering right from design, engineering development and production all at one place.
    2. Good salary if you are a campus recruit especially

    Cons

    1. Bureaucratic red tape. Things work very slowly.
    2. Quality is not given top priority, not even second priority.
    3. Slow growth, subjective evaluation of performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs a way in which data from one department flows and is available to others in a systematic way. right only drawing has a system, no other data. getting data is dependent on people's whims and fancies.
    HR policy of sandwiching leaves is of dinosaur age.Reward hard work, not people who are in good books of bosses.

    Pros

    Respected and well known brand
    Decent money

    Cons

    Poor quality of work-Lots of unnecessary paperwork
    A large no. of people in the middle management are incompetent of making firm decisions
    Blind following culture- Little attention is paid to customization while copying the best industry practices. The question as to "why we are doing something" is never asked.
    Not enough scope and encouragement for real innovation and creativity.
    Huge Labour Union issue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hire overqualified engineering grads for unworthy paperwork. Alternatively, provide intellectually stimulating work to the employees instead of forcing them to generate gigabytes of data which is of no real use.
