    The management seems quite nice. They take care of LEAD/LEAP participants in every sense (good salary, independence)

    LEAP (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsGood money, Independence of work, Experience diversity of business in the Aditya Birla. You will get a chance to work in 4 companies in the first year before choosing the company you woudl like to work after 1 year

    ConsYou 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

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Manager

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsGives 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

    ConsSlow 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 Senior ManagementPls. look at value and not at ROI.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The leadership program could have been managed better to fulfill the expectations while recruiting.

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsIts 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.

    ConsPerformance 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.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

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

    Monetary compensation/benefit is okay

    ConsKnowledge 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 Senior ManagementPlease 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
