Only brand name is the attraction for joining at ITC. Initially, you join as Intern (2 months, it does not count towards work experience) with moderate stipend and TA. Then you get permanent job role of Sales Trainee/Assistant Under Training. For Sales Trainee, after 1 year, Sales Officer and after 2 years, Area Executive. After that the growth is stagnant.
For AUT, it might take 1 - 2 years to become Assistant Branch Manager.
ABMs can switch to other teams, but SO or AEs have only one direction to move.
Job security is there at ITC.
You will get to learn a lot, often in the painful ways. Because you have to do everything alone. Your mentor will be busy handling sales and may not be meeting you frequently. So it makes you self-dependent.

Dislikes

There is really no reason to join ITC these days, if you do not crave for the brand name or only if you want to continue in sales profile till you retire. As an employee, you will not find much dignity. Sales Trainees are treated like prostitutes.

ITC does not have a proper training department. After 5-6 months even when you have had enough training, you are asked to continue the same work. Also there is a perception gap - Branch Manager will expect you to understand the strategic and operational levels whereas your mentor Area Executive will expect you to sell products in the market tagged with a salesman.

The initial salary given to Sales Trainees are 3.6 LPA to 4 LPA. After 1 year it is 5.3 LPA and after 2 years, it is 7 LPA. Salary is very low considering that it is hardcore sales job and the amount of travel and also according to market benchmark.

Work life balance is frustratingly low here. You may have to work till 11PM at night.

Work

Working at ITC is severely hectic. No permanent location. If you are from north, they will deliberately put you to south.
Office is full of politics, abusive language and slave like treatment towards juniors. You must butter your manager to please him.

It is a Very good company interms of Job security. People are also helpful for your personal development. Interms of salary and other benifits its very average. All HR related policies are not employee oriented. Policy of Medical benifits are very average, our parents are not included. Interms of other benifits there are loats of Cut off dates for getting that benifits.Work life balance is also not so good but HR as well as our superior have taken iniciative to improve work life balance.Overall company its a good company to work.

Dislikes

In ITC work life balance is always a concern. HR policies need to improve but now a days company is going towards a right direction. Culure of staing late is discuraging by seniors. Appraisal happen in a year and the same time managers are giving there opinion. Only year end they are informing us why they are giving average rating. Managers should ask to their subordinate quaterly basis so that they can improve themself.Yearly increment is happning in Nov but it should be within April to June.3 months notice period is too long it should be 2 months.

Work

I like to worked in both companies because of travelling and the company gives good travel allowance which is sufficient. Salary is also sufficient to me.

Dislikes

ITC LTD: Company staffs making internal politics and the seniors are not let the juniors to grow.Seniors involving in personal and privacy .Even they do not allow to get the sufficient allowances and in ITC ltd the seniors are treating the trainees as their slaves.Even though the higher officials supports the juniors , the senior staffs are not happy because of the fear that the trainees may grow more than them.Totally they are not let us to work honestly.Senior staffs supporting the vendors and let the product with poor quality. The trainees who are youngsters does not like this. If the quality parameters are abnormal, seniors wont get incentive.Hence they give pressure to trainees to make false readings which are in to the limits.If the trainees refused to do this, the seniors punishing them by long travel,mental torture,work pressure and false complaints to manager.
PCI Ind Pvt Ltd: Seniors cover big area while they give low area to juniors which affects the incentive of juniors

Work

PCI India Pvt Ltd:I have worked as CUSTOMER SERVICE EXECUTIVE in this company. I did marketing of several pest control services provided by this company.
ITC ltd: In this company i have worked as quality checker trainee in vendor places.

ITC is one of the worst fmcg companies that one can work for. It has a typical Indian bueuraucratic culture, considering a lot of people start their careers here including myself, I would warn them against ruining their peace of mind and work life balace at an age where they could be having amazing life experience ( which if you are here you just dont have the energy or enthusiasm to do). From bottom level to up the office environment is one of tention and ego issues and not a really healthy vibe at all. Career is important I agree but its not like the returns you get by putting in so much effort actually put you in a competetive place or ahead of the curve. You will work till 10pm on weekdays and weekends as well and you are not going to get any incremental learning from putting in incremental hours. Because most of the time what you are doing is navigating through the tough and beautaucratic system to get something done. They have a HUGE attrition rate for obvious reasons and I can assure you you will have a tough time finding someone who actually liked working here or thought that ITC gave their careers a boost/edge.

ITC PSPD Ltd is very very responsible at Environment and Public, I like The way ITC helps to villages and Villages Schools development. Coming to work life, ITC job is a very secured job like Govt job until unless any fraud done by you. ITC is very responsible for their employees training in terms of Technical, Management, Safety, Leadership, Especially for youngsters. If you have a good technical,management and communication skills nobody will stop your career growth in ITC, company always encourages the new innovative thoughts, if you are confident at your thought ITC never ever think about budget for trail(Man, Machine, Material) which Idea have been given by you. But surely your Idea should be valuable in terms of safety,machne life increases,Production increase etc.

Dislikes

ITC PSPD Ltd small draw back in their staff salary issue, Yearly increment is very very low.

Good company for freshers, lots to learn and good brand name.

Dislikes

People at TM&D division have to work drom 9AM to 11PM at night. Only people who are at the top enjoy luxuary work life. It is a very low work-life balance there. The compensation is poor and people who are at the bottom find it difficult even to buy food and groceries. Location is never fixed for a suitable long term. In case you do not butter/bribe your boss/manager, you may be rotated through cities in a short span of 7 - 10 days. So imagine the case of married people or new couples. Also office space stays full of smell of tobacco, it is the market leader in cigarette after all!

Low in work-life balance.

ITC is open to innovation and readily adopts latest technology. I love the fact that I am a part of a team that markets reliable, high-quality products, focused on safety and has a global client base. As a result, I get to travel abroad, especially to the north-east Asian countries. I also like the employee re-hire policy here.

Dislikes

Need to think on performance based rather than time based upgradation and compensation.

Work

Generally speaking, my work is slightly challenging as I have to look after the entire procurement of raw materials available from farm forestry owing to required quantity, quality and cost. But I enjoyed with working.
