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

    Pros

    Can have the job till you are tired of it, your core incompetency is valued more than what your good at.
    Want a promotion, all you got to do is do a major screw up by yourself, blame it on sm1 in the UK and then act like your fixing it for the next 5 years, you will be promoted atleast 3 times due to this issue.
    Honestly the UK stakeholder do not know their jobs, the bengaluru counter parts just need to act as if the mistake is from UK.
    Great celebrations of success when there is hardly any.
    If you are a leader who has been asked to leave from your previous company- Tesco is the place for you-They want you for your incompetencies.
    The Indian management love the feudilistic way of living, so not difficult to grow once you suck up-to them. Wanna a good hike just present flowers to your bosses spouse on his behalf.Already have pointed out how to grow.
    Fantastic place to work to get paid and not do any work.
    Love the 80's this is the place for you, they are still back in that time

    Cons

    What can be the con's-really!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the incompetent work.It takes a lot of hard work to fail consistently.
