    As its a big conglomerate, the diversification of the business leads to many a times a confusing state for the employees, especially in times of global turbulence in various sectors.

    Pros

    - Effective shop floor management.
    - Introduction to 5S and EHS techniques.
    - Continuous improvement activities like identification of overhead and jib cranes, positive priming of the motor providing water to the paint booth etc. were examples of the vast exposure I received.

    Cons

    - Improper documentation of purchase orders.
    - Too many hierarchical levels amongst production engineers and managers. This makes it more difficult to differentiate between roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Try to define roles amongst engineers in a more efficient way. E.g. An electrical engineer should not be doing the job of an industrial engineer.
