    Pros

    Employee Centric workplace with human touch. Bosses could be good or bad but company is best in terms of increment, education policy, promotion, PLI, family get-togethers.

    Pros

    Organization structure, policies and values. Employee Engagement activities from Aditya Birla Group and also Idea Cellular. Growth Opportunities.

    Cons

    I believe challenges are way of learning. However there were no challenges to work and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was wonderful and cooperative. I got opportunity to facilitiate Himanshu Kapania and other key stake holders of the company. I loved to work with them. However Management should be concern about employees working in same position and department for many years !
