    I worked at Colruyt Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hardly any Pros to mention about this company.

    Cons

    Worst Salary structured paid at industry level.
    Demand the compensation twice as you are going to experience real pain 1. with Management , 2. Pain of Working with Belgians who does' not allow you to think and work the way you want.
    Indian office in raheja is placed only such that lazy Belgians will send all work which is boring for them to execute. Belgians only trust Indians to do boring jobs which they don't wan't themselves to do.
    Those who join this company, You are selling your dignity for the peanuts that they offer you. You will see real hell working with some cheap Belgian colleagues and senseless management.
    Although 10 Seniors get fired under one manager, manager does' not get fired. No one sees managers fault (Blind senior management)
    Blind dreams of few managers who like there team development to expert positions with zero investments on trainings.
    Indian management is scared to counter Belgians even for there worst mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop calling yourself busy, we know you do more non-sense meetings.
    Focus on your cons. Page will not be enough to write everything.

    Current Employee - Senior Developer in Hyderābād (India)

    I have been working at Colruyt Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open communication
    Less micromanagement
    One can diversify oneself into multiple technologies, colruyt gives that opportunity
    Good onsite opportunities, if based at india
    One can grow with unimaginable speed, if one has the potential
    Less work, less stress
    no targets
    "GOOD SALARY" - you can never expect more than what Colruyt India gives.
    Very employee friendly** (please note the stars and please follow the cons too)
    Numerous leaves
    And for sure: WORK LIFE BALANCE

    Cons

    Cons are specific to india:
    Not all management understands the needs and aspirations of the employees.
    **Recently updated HR policies are pure non-sense and not worth it
    **Cheap behavior of the management in recent times relating to compensation benefits for shift
    There are few, just a few people in higher management who can play a bad game very well, they bluff, they cheat, they trick, they lie and they fool you.
    The original "Culture and values" part was good when Belgians had the rule, but after Colruyt India is given ownership of IT management, they re-invented a broken wheel out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would not listen anyway, why give a suggestion
