    I have been working at ITC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Still an unparallel FMCG Company in terms of professionalism and work culture
    2. Its more of an institution than an organisation where freshers have the time to learn and deliver
    3. High reputation and market equity gives employees motivation and pride to work .
    4. Huge scope of rankers(from grassroot level) to reach high level by perfromance and sincerity.

    Cons

    Role of HR is almost nil.
    HR initiatives are seen only before appraisals.

    Advice to Management

    1.Very fast changing environment to reach the organisational objective will be paid off.
    2. For the increasing pressure of multiple priority and n number of work, objective is getting diluted.
    3. Loyalty towards the company and ownership of work has been missing in the last few years due to short term performance goal .
    3. Due to few bad leaders efficient performers are leaving the organisation.
