I worked at Apollo Tyres South Africa full-time
Pros – Sells the respected Dunlop branded Tyre products - Customers are King.
Operations in all the major cities - Opportunity to move within the business.
Staff are dedicated and hard working.
Cons – Staff are usually not trusted or given freedom to perform or make real decisions.
Staff Communications as well as the HR Function is almost non existent.
The Executive Management are aloof, disengaged and often in conflict with each other.
Overseas Head Office (in India) have very little regard or respect for their South African staff.
Advice to Senior Management – Outsource the HR function.
Needs a more focused and Mature/Experienced Top management.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Company has very ambitious goals

Give employees authority within in their positions, after all you employed them for a reason
Start trusting employees more by making use of modern technology, it will reduce your cost in the long run
