I worked at Raymond Limited full-time (More than 5 years)
Work life balance, good travel allowances sufficient for comfortable stay & meals, trips across the country with time to explore local attractions in the evenings
Not much growth space, dont value loyal employees as much as lateral hires, HR can make or break your career- if you are in their good books, you'll get timely promotions & good hikes, otherwise you are stuck, manufacturing side of the business has an orthodox work culture. New CEO Mr. Behl thinks he's Modi- promises the world to you in townhalls & wont follow up on them. Not open to suggestions, very autocratic, has chucked out all senior management who could oppose him and his ideas. Work culture deteriorated to just obeying the commands that the CEO/ PMO passes down, lock your brains away & forget about job satisfaction. Overstaffed, they lack focus, company has no patience to support new businesses and leave them hanging only to shut them down soon till the next CEO comes & revives it as his own idea.
Advice to Management
Mr.Behl is renaming old ideas and taking credit for the same. Wake up and do some data analysis yourself and see the real contribution of the CEO. Also value atleast your better employees
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raymond Limited (Thane (India)) in May 2016.
I got call from a consultant. They asked me to complete psychometric and apptitude test prior to personal interview.
On the day of interview, i hve waited for 1.5hrs before hr representative attended me. And another 3hrs before interview started.
The interviewer was not at all interested in conducting interview. And spent less than mins to complete the interview. In between, he was talking on phone, avoiding eye contacts and at the end told me that if i m selected, i will be called for next round.
Only to talk for 10mins, they have made me wait for 4 hrs by concluding non-interested interview.
The interviewer had treated me as like i m a GET. I found that he must have someone in mind and just to complete the process, he was conducting interview or to fill the position with someone from his relation. IT WAS TRULY UNPROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE.
I didn't expect that standard company like Reymond can be so unprofessional. Be careful before accepting the job offer
