    You will have lots of opportunity to learn things and face challenges which will shape anyone into a Good professional.

    Cons

    Some times or at some group businesses you might not get enough guidance as everyone would busy in their business. In these cases you need to be pro-active to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Across all the groups the actual performance system shall be followed rather leaving this to particular departmental Head's own convenience. This will help to ensure rewarding right people.
