    I have been working at METRO Cash & Carry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In tough Indian retail market Metro made profit for continuous 2 years because of vision and focus of leadership on efficiency. Also with the launch of e-commerce it is moving in the right direction to cater to Kiranas across all channels.

    Cons

    It is in transformation phase in terms of IT systems, so you need to have patience. But it is also a good learning opportunity too.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on efficiency driven by IT system deployment to standardize the processes across departments (specifically operations).

    I worked at METRO Cash & Carry full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to know about the wholesale industry and how B2B works

    Cons

    This is a review for manager and above level employees in their Head Office in Yeshwantpur. Completely dominated by North Indians in top management and they bully other region employees a lot. There are some departments which are working as separate entities. Its like a cartel of their own. HR is helpless. Too much of employee unfairness in every aspect if you dont be obedient to them. Just sucks. Avoid this company if you are not used to bullying and hate racism and serious about your career.

    Advice to Management

    One day the world will see your true colors. Stop forcing employees to vote for best company to work for and create false image.
