-flat structure mean promotion takes years
-lots of process, bureaucracy, documenting vs. doing, etc

Advice to Management

get more radical about simplification (so many people think they are doing mission critical work that def aren't). nuke a few systems or kill a few processes and see if the world really ends. get some leadership in GBS(IT) that can really deliver on this digitization vision instead of just cost-cutting.

    "Great responsibilities from the start"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good experience. Lot to learn and great responsibilities from the start. Largest FMCG to work for, so the scope of learning and growing is great.

    Cons

    bureaucracy is a major deterrent in the growth of the company. Due to its sheer size, the company is not able to be agile enough to react to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    try to create a structure where there is more flexibility both externally in terms of the speed at which we react to the competitors and internally, so that employees are given more freedom in working across departments and geographies to imbibe leadership.
