    Good platform to learn, big brand, timely salary, supportive seniors as well as team members.

    Pros

    A good brand value so it will add weight in CV....

    Only few people is running the company who are close to management.
    No scope for two way communication actually they discourage the open communication efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Few people in Top are only working there to gain personal profits.They are presenting a euphoria to management but it is only because they want to validate self biased decisions.

    I worked at Parle Agro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not much work load, you can choose what you need to work because there is no set KRA or direction, lot of opportunity for self learning cauz there is hardly any work, wide exposure - get to do a dipstick on almost eeerything

    Cons

    Org full of dirty politics, lack of accountability, sr management is full of either inefficient white elephants or ppl past their retirement who are good for saying yes mam or sir all the time. has the most unclassy senior management i have ever seen with abuse being a regular part or any conversation. people operate with almost no rational or facts, just instinct and a false belief of a know it all attitude. ppl just play ping pong all day with very few people actually working to get things done. working in this place for a long time will make you professionally redundant but will increase your skill on how to avoid work, play dirty politics and extrapolate your meaningless and unimpactful achievements. my advice take a salary revision and jump. place is only meant for inefficient ppl who cant find a job outside

    Advice to Management

    Never mind they wont listen...let them live in their past glory...

    I have been working at Parle Agro full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    a) Good paymaster
    b) If you are looking for good-work life balance then this is the place. Work load is very less.

    Cons

    a) Very whimsical. No structure. No processes. Even after 6 months of training, my KRAs have not been set.
    b) Does not invest into employees in terms of training
    c) A very babu-like work culture
    d) Your learning will come to a naught, if esp you are in the marketing team. It is a very whimsical way of working.
    e) An organisation rid with politics

    Advice to Management

    Please put some structures into place so that the legacy brand does not come down because of whims of a few
