    I worked at M. N. Dastur & Co. (P) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No hierarchical, matrix type organization, engineers were from all the regions of the country Organization culture was pluralistic and good unto year 2010 , After founders demise , the organization culture has changed

    Cons

    At present the the organization structure is dominated from a specific region and there is regional bias. Top management officials are in 63 plus category and it shows resistance for any change management initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Top management should be in the early 50's or late 48. The organization shall have engineers at all level from all regions as it existed from 1956 to 2010 to ensure Pan India and Pan world presence
