An organisation that gives enormous exposure if you deliver
Marketing Manager, Coatings India GU (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaApril 30, 2019
This is the only organisation I have worked so far for around 11 years in India. I have got incredible exposure throughout the organisation and promoted 4 times. However, its not great on the pay scale and very recently the organisation has completely lost the purpose and all that the management care is about the stakeholder returns. Incredible number of workforce cuts and restructuring going on for more than 2 years now and no visibility by when its going to end.
Pros
Good exposure, relatively flat hierarchy for a legacy organisation
Cons
Very much internal focused and significantly less importance to employees and customers

Not much fun at lower level
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Mohali, PunjabJuly 31, 2018
AkzoNobel=Fun/Career/Promotion/Salary/Facilities, but only level above officers! But when you look at ground level, the ones who do actual job, toil in paint, resin, dust, chemicals, grease, risk accidents, sweat on the shop floor, stand continuously for hours! (the ants in Jungle analogy) there is no fun, not much salary (excuse cost to production/ company), less facilities as compared to elites (level above officers). Company reluctant to invest in modern production facilities/automation (at least when I was there). Workers remain under constant indirect psychological pressure for production targets (so that higher management get hefty incentives/bonuses), as there was favoritism for workers who willing to serve the management's greed, even at the cost of quality and those workers used to get favors from management in promotion/leaves/performance incentives (no wonder I used to see so many market complaints!). Forget to mention the company's obsession for candidates from tier-I institutions for higher and middle management role at hefty packages, whether or not those so called tire-I candidates are useful to company.

P.S. All these observations are up to year 2013 (till my association with the company). I don't know if the management practices changed later on..
Pros
safety at workplace, working hours and weekly offs
Cons
ethics and double standards
