    Pros

    Best of both worlds. Big brand, yet being fairly new in the Indian market, has an entrepreneurial culture with huge prospects for growth in the medium/long term

    Cons

    Struggling in the short term. Vision is still a little fuzzy. Not the best paymasters. The segment that this company caters to is highly regulated hence little/no scope for marketing/sales professionals to get creative

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear agenda on the way forward and communicate the same to ground level employees. The policies and way of functioning at the ground level needs to change drastically. An open house with the field force and actually implementing their suggestions fast would help
