    Pros

    good brand equity
    superior product quality
    excellent market acceptance
    stability in career- no hire and fire policy

    Cons

    the lower and middle management are not interested about the good future of the compatany. you will be forced to indulge in unethical practices. if u deny..plz go..hard work will never make u proud in this organization..the lower management is habituated to short cuts..now they are not ready to put hard for the growth of the company. lower management is acting like dictator. lake professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of the execution part..all the planning are going in vein because of unethical lower-middle management. you are thinking company is growing..but ask your representative how much money they are forced to invest in the market being pressurized by the lower management. This is not good for the health of the company in long run. plz do the needful and eliminate the parasite who are destroying the company and fill it with good people.

    I have been working at The Himalaya Drug Company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Top Management is employee friendly and has a well managed hierarchy with high focus on process orientation and value driven work culture.

    Cons

    The Middle Management, however is infested by wrong values and hence all efforts of the higher levels lack execution in actuals...especially at Mid-Senior levels, much against a scientific and steady/long term growth orientation for the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce 360 Degree employee appraisals AT ONCE
    Eliminate BIASED loyalty in the working environment.
    RESPECT the ability of Fresh & Out of Box Thinking
    ACCEPT that doing the above is the ONLY way to sustain the Glory once created
