    I worked at Tata Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work culture, lots of chances to make improvements and make a difference,

    Cons

    Slow office culture. Most people are old and so less young enthusiasm in office. Benefits are good at starting salary but growth is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve office culture and find a way to handle ' everything is ok' attitude. We need to compete with the best companies and do better

    Pros

    nice culture and good chances learning, it takes good care of its employees and it is really nice to work for company in the start of you career.

    Cons

    compensation is quite low as compared to the work load we have, at the same i think even chance of promotion are not easy, you need to work for long time before thinking about any growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase the compensation soon.

    I have been working at Tata Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company (for above average performers)
    Less work load
    Good opportunities if working in Commercial Vehicle segment

    Cons

    Higher management not ready to take calculated risk, to help business improve
    NO whistle-blowing policy: every information you share with HR or top boss gets dictated to your boss!
    Many old employees (been here long enough) have gone into comfort zone, and hence difficult for company to get many new things done
    Company infected with nepotism. HR rules very weak, and too much power to HoDs.
    Company benefits are out-dated
    Company focus is shifting from Employee-oriented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have your priorities right, identify your actual customer, don't restrict your vision to your own specialization - learn and improvise.
    Don't go cheap with policies, and trying to "save" pennies from employees; happy employees can help create better products.
    During these tough times of company, bring up the talented employees (talent pool schemes) to take up important projects, rather than saving money by stopping talent pool schemes.

    I worked at Tata Motors

    Pros

    Since it's an indian company, everything is done in India from scratch. So the exposure and learning here are tremendous. A lot of autonomy is given to employees to make decisions and try different ways of executing the work. Young talent is encouraged and given good opportunities.
    Good talent management programs

    Cons

    Salaries are poor. Yearly increment and bonuses are very poor.
    Lack of clarity in decision making by the mid-management and top management
    Too much politics
    Poor performance in market against competition is a demotivator
    R&D and project management is spoilt by old style of commercial vehicle attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop experimenting so much on so many fronts. Take a firm decision and stick to it.

    I have been working at Tata Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1 Certain policies are well written to protect from harassment, specially helpful for female employees

    2 Can get a good work life balance (if your manager himself is allowing you to maintain the same else be ready to work for his benefit )

    Cons

    1) Gone are days when TATA group was considered to care for its employees, wind of change is blowing and its nothing more than a private company now

    2) rule of 80/20 works . 80% people ( Lateral ) works for 20% ( who join as GET/PGETS/MTs ) and the later actually get benefited and make steep career progress due to there goodwill with alike seniors in higher position

    3) Totally confused top management lots of initiatives ending up with frustrated Jr management level

    4) Trainings are pathetic irrelevant and focussed on organisation goals not employee skill development ( with compare to trainings I Received in an German Car Brand )

    5) Performance measurement system is purely subjective and depends on the Appraiser and Reviewer's goodwill you have , generally being used as a tool for punishing the employees who don't have the same no matter how hard/sincerely they worked . Goals being set are conflicting like you have to go east and west at the same time ( hope u can understand ) if u go east you cant go west so your rating depends on your manager at the time of final review .

    6) Cost cutting is huge . maintenance of office amenities are very poor, Back end support by management is worst .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider Discussing to have a healthy and employee centred policies and systems
