    The work offered is of high quality. Quick decisions are taken, however the decisions may or may not be right all the time.

    Absence of systems and processes. Too many adhoc. Work Culture is not upto the mark and one has to be continuously servile to grow in the organisation. One may be held accountable for a lot of things which s/he may not be even responsible for.

    I worked at Britannia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Profesionally managed FMCG with emphasis on systems and process, learning from the past and oppertunity for all levels of employees to contribute. This is one company where a profit shairing agreememnt was signed witth the union, where increments were given without incresing the labour cost percentage. the union management relationship is comentable where practically no loss of manhours due to labour unrest. The middle management personnel - which is the key link to the success - productivity improvments, cost savings, ensuring quality - works with the feeling that they are the "management" Another success reason is the distribution of manufacturing locations, by which the products reach to the end user with minimum travel. The distribution net work is trained in such a way that the FIFO is followed even in the retail out-let A lot you can learn and contribute in Britannia

    Cons

    Beeing a well establised 'old' FMCG, there are some difficulties in implementing new ideas, of cource this is ONLY a iniital problem and once you are accepted you dont get into this issue. Growth for a 'young' professional appears slow in th einitial stages - not due to the dificiancy of Britannia, but, sue to the impatiance of the current generation, however, in the long run you grow better than any other compnay in Britannia. This is one reason why people come back to Britannia after the first innings
