General Manager, IT for 29 years in KolkataAnonymous (Former Employee) | Information Technology Division Anonymous (Former Employee) | Information Technology division
The fact that I served the Company for 41 years proves that I was quite satisfied with my job. Bata Shoe is a world wide organisation and hence there used to be seminars and training courses held at various countries. As a result I got to travel to Toronto (HQ at that time), Bangkok, Singapore and Dacca for project development and to attend different management courses and seminars. Company's policy towards their employees and customer was humane and that is why no one need to bother about their job security. There was a system of self evaluation and then evaluation by one's boss once every year was there. One would be appraised of his strengh and weakness during evaluation, a grade used to be accorded and increment in salary/promotion used to be announced. Because of its retail network Bata is present in almost every town / city and we used to consider ourself a part of big Bata family.
The work pressure was very high. Though official working hours is 9.00am to 5.30pm (Monday to Friday) but me being a member of service department had to work beyond daily schedule hours, all Saturdays and sometime Sunday even.
