    Cons

    You might be sent to some distant place for 3 months like a friend was sent to an African country which was suffering from civil wars and crimes at that time

    Pros

    Gives a lot of breadth in the working area.
    If you are interested in becoming a Generalist (jack of all trades) then this is a right place.
    OK compensation

    Cons

    Slow decision making at the high levels, making the organization loose a lot of opportunity value.
    Too much of nepotism
    Not a great place for an IT personnel as business is not IT Savvy.
    Lot of fuzziness in the the role definition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pls. look at value and not at ROI.

    Pros

    Its a great place to work in terms of their employee friendly policies and to maintain a good work life balance with enough time to pursue other interests.

    Cons

    Performance is not emphasized as much as it should be for an organization that is publicly very ambitious. While the group rewards loyalty, it could do a lot more to encourage newer employees to stay loyal by managing their careers better with more transparency in the entire feedback process.

    learning is one of the main reason and also knowledge sharing and good and helpful seniors make this place better.

    Immense opportunities for learning because of its diversified nature but unfair & non-transparent performance appraisal

    Current Employee - Manager in Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at Aditya Birla Management

    Pros

    Immense opportunities for learning and growth because of its size and diversity

    Monetary compensation/benefit is okay

    Cons

    Knowledge and expertize will be treated well only when you are up the hierarchy ladder...its hierarchy crazy Group

    Performance appraisal and promotion system is very good on paper but dubious in reality; eg. how somebody has been rated better than you...absolutely not transparent, I have seen a non-performer getting EE while a hardworker ME, Discretion of boss in appraisal is openly abused. Sometimes, reviewers don't bother give their comments in boxex for manager's comment, goal setting is not very clear....

    Variable pay policy is simply unjust...you'll lose your variable pay for the year 01-04-2011 - 01-04-2012 if you resign before 31-03-2012. It should ideally be on prorata basis

    To survive here one has to be good at managing ego of bosses.... good work will be treated as good if you're in in good book of your bosses....which you cannot ensure by doing good work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn to respect knowledge and expertize. Treat young professionals with respect and fair/objective appraisal/promotion....as competent people have no problem in finding alternative employment in skill deficit economy....and please change this mean variable pay policy...it will only discourage incompetent people to stay not competent ones
