    Pros

    The outlook of the work environment looks professional till you settle down. The company seems to be pro-Certain Indian party ...there is nothing to hide, pro-congress party and the whole of their culture reflects the dirty politics of the rotten era.

    Cons

    At CBS Bengaluru, some of the managers are indulging in very dirty HR practices. They would not define the roles properly and with their shabby selection process, hire employees who will have very little idea of the hidden agendas of their managers.

    Advice to Management

    STOP Dirty HR practices and politics @ CBS Bengaluru

    I have been working at Cargill (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Free Cab facilities
    2. Flexibility - If you are planning to settle down in a job, then this is the place to be
    3. Handpicked few good individuals - Thank God

    Cons

    Cargill is a huge company and has many businesses under it's umbrella that are really doing well. But this shared service centre - CBS, Bangalore, that they have formed in the name of outsourcing is a big lie - staritng from recruitment. They paint a very positive image in order to recruit people. As has been pointed out in all the other reviews, the leadership team(sitting in private rooms) are unqualified to be leading a growing division of 1000+ employees.

    1. Appraisals are very unjust and opaque
    2. Managers micro-manage and are extremely transactional - practicing and preaching jugaad as a mantra/goal
    3. Leads are the biggest jokers who talk a lot of high-funda stuff, and travel for free using company's AMEX card

    Please do not join this place unless you want to settle down.

    Advice to Management

    CBS lacks vision and direction. If the focus is right, then everything can be sorted. Also, please think about incentives, and ways to engage and motivate employees in order to reduce attrition. There's a strong reason why people don't like to join here/ quit so soon.
