        Doesn't Recommend

        I worked at Godrej Consumer Products full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Quick learning, good exposure since not an international MNC, lesser number of approval levels

        Cons

        Very old school thinking, HR and top management doesn't think about development of young execs, top heavy management, career progression is an issue especially in marketing due to some weak developmental or zero interest in developing path for upward progression. Learning is largely dependent on the individual. Accountability can be an issue across functions and as a brand manager/asst brand manager you're more or else...

        Advice to Management

        Think and plan better for the next talents you hire. Else the retention rate will never improve. Especially marketing. Value talent and groom them if you see one. Don't make policies to only support when top management sees fit. Apply those policies to everyone equally.

        I worked at Godrej Consumer Products

        Pros

        The infrastructure is pretty good now.

        Cons

        Do you know how companies like GCPL, the big four and several banks showcase these top employer awards? And yet all our friends and colleagues there suffer day and night? This is just a classic example. The place is a pressure cooker. Deadlines and targets and whatnots. Most people there are delusional for thinking they are so much better than they actually are. The brand name is good and the company looks good on one's...

        Advice to Management

        I worked at Godrej Consumer Products full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - Good leave and travel policy

        Cons

        - No direct communication of Regional HR with Field Officers - Too much politics especially in West - Differential schemes to different areas - just sheer politics - Lot of people have been put on PIP and thrown out of system. Lot of new joinees have not been confirmed and have been thrown out of the system within 6 months - Micromanaging at every level. No freedom to do things on your own

        Advice to Management

        - Open your eyes
