    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Century Plyboards (I) Limited full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is OK.
    Reimbursements are cleared.

    Cons

    Much sales pressure.
    Be prepared that if you are a manager with salary of "2X" as compared to a sales executive, you need to do "2x" sales.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire graduates from small colleges, then groom / grill / do whatever with them, and then take them to the top level. This will suit the industry and people.

    I have been working at Century Plyboards (I) Limited full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good brand image.
    Brand image can let you get in touch with many people.

    Cons

    Over worked, over utilized, under paid, undermined.
    No employee empowerment. ASM and BM decides at what rate should a customer will get a product and from which dealer the product should be supplied. This means that the dealers will think that sales executives are not working but only the ASM and BM is working.
    Sales targets are purely secondary even though they wont mention that before you join the company.
    Long hours.
    Endless reports. You would have to slog a lot in front of the computer if you are to finish the reports.
    Atleast two employees resigns every month.

    Advice to Management

    ODJ won't work for long. You are driving out good talents from your company.
    HR's please chek your attrition rate before its too late.
