Rakesh Jha, Manager-PTD PM
“It’s sheer coincidence that Mahindra AFS has been participating in GPTW for the past ten years, and I have completed ten years in M&M on October 20. I joined as a GET in 2010 from campus after completing my BE. When I was offered the GET-MBA policy to complete a two year full-time MBA on sabbatical, it was truly a RISE moment for me, and in my MBA campus, people revered the fact that such a policy exists in an Indian company.”
Sanjeev Kumar, Dy. Manager - Service, MTBD
“The various HR policies and the team’s constant interaction have always kept the goals and core values clear. Our medical, ethical, moral and social values have always been respected and specifically taken care of here. This place is no less than my family.”

“M&M is a great place to work in because it gives us the power to imagine better and make it happen by being true to ourselves. Sometimes we may choose our path out of fear. But with guidance and support, we are inspired towards the right direction. We don't need any magic to change the world; we just need a chance.”
Abhishek Kumar, Manager - Simultaneous Engineering (CME) MRV, Shadow Board Winner at M101 Conclave
“Mahindra has given us various platforms to ‘Rise’, such as ELP (Emerging Leadership Program), which has provided me not only with advanced and agile management skills but also the skill through which we can enable our society to Rise. Shadow Board gave me a platform to create a new idea/Business/Ecosystem and work under the guidance of top management. Our project was shortlisted to be showcased to none other than Anand Mahindra, and it was a dream come true for all of us.”
