    Pros

    - Opportunity to be enterpreneurial. You can make a visible difference (but you have to be resilient)
    - Recognition of achievements.
    - Support work life balance.
    - Some really great people.

    Cons

    - It is not what it says on the lable. It is neither a pharmaceutical nor an FMCG company. Lot of young, dynamic FMCG people brought in, who want to leave the co. after a very short time. They got frustrated by the slow pace and the attitude of some departments which are still dominated by old pieces of furniture.
    - It can be a bit too ad hoc at times.
    - Some poor managers.

    Advice to Management

    Put lot more effort into trying to keep valuable associates.
    Think more strategically and do not focus only on the quaterly delivery.
