    Former Employee - Senior Sales Manager in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Cavinkare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good R&D Facility

    Good Salary even you are an Incompetent employee.

    Cons

    Too Many to write...

    Works on Very Short term Unrealistic Vision.

    Company is full of Highly paid Incompetent employees who may not survive outside the cavinkare world.

    Zero BRAND pull but tries to emulate an MNC....Cavinkare believes that no matter what produat is launched at whatever price range custoners will buy without any ATL and BTL activity.

    Very Poor HR Team with a weak & puppet HR Head sitting on the top who is only active when a new employee joins the organisation " by sending a welcome note from his email ID" . The so called HR Head is just a puppet of CKR.

    The new CEO with a controversial past ( ex MD of a reputed MNC ) is being hired I guess to enjoy his retired life with good salary and perks . He does nothing but breaks the great work environment which once Cavinkare was proud of. This can be sustantiated by the nos of top and middle management employees recent resignation.

    Boasts of its IT & Paperless working when the reality is many top and middle management employees doesnt even know or purposely doesnt check mails . Work will be done with continous reminders over the phone.

    No personal growth or promotion unless u r in the " correct lobby".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Realistic... wake up from the past glory else it will be the story of Dynasore...
    Gone are the days of ur success of CHIK Shampoo Sachets...Today the reality is CHIK is used for car wash...

    Pros

    If you want to witness real life comedy, join this company for a few weeks or months. It's full of Rajnikants.

    Cons

    A very unprofessional company. Unable to move with times. Does not have any focus. It's like living in a fool's paradise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get matured, open up the mindset. Stop assuming other companies and people as fools and stupids.

    I have been working at Cavinkare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There is no pro to such a company...... Extremely horrible.... and politics and they steal money

    Cons

    * The GMs in the company take money under the table from creative ad agencies, packaging agencies, design houses etc. You will see that this is very evident when you will see that each GM works with only one agency, even when CKR and the entire company will shout that the agency has not created good work.
    * Sales team steals all the scheme money. People from Chennai send budgets for displays etc. That money does not go to stores and wholesale. Sales team steals the entire money and make a fake claim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the GMs in all departments.
