    I have been working at Ashok Leyland

    Pros

    Work culture is good, but the work environment is not that good. The company has a long history and it had seen lot of ups and downs.

    Cons

    The management seems to give more liberty in decisions to the project leaders, but in fact it does not. Growth trajectory is pretty much downwards.
