    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ashok Leyland full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If u the type of person who says yes sir for everything...do work without questioning why or don't suggest improvements, then this is a good place for u.

    Cons

    Work life balance nil.. HR doesn't listen to your problems... If u complain and Ur mentor says opposite things, then HR believes Ur mentor... Salary increment is minimal..5% pay cut also done once- it is reverted back after sometime ..but there is no increment for effectively 2 years.. An increment of 7% a year is the best this company can do..

    Advice to Management

    Please consider work life balance by at least giving Saturdays off... Consider competition structure and increment in paying out salaries... Treat employees as Ur asset...not properties...

      Cons

      more credit goes to people who are good at talking and shouting from the roof top rather than the people who work really hard and sincerely

      I have been working at Ashok Leyland full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      If you have an empowering manager - sky is the limit for how much you can do and achieve. Huge learning ground since mistakes are not penalized

      Cons

      Very person-centric, hierarchy driven, silo mentality. As a whole the organization does not permit contrarion view. Lack of focus on processes and planning

      Advice to Management

      Just sit down and plan and have some respect for processes

      I worked at Ashok Leyland full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      exposure to all new technologies, dedicated HR services,including insurance which will support even after your superannuation.

      Cons

      cast-biased approach of some senior official will spoil the grading of your performance. you need to be cautious on approach.

      Advice to Management

      in my experience (37 years), I was never appraised with un-biased approach, by my appraising authority and also they failed to extract best out of me?. This should be avoided. I am the victim of cast-biased approach.
