Which ABG company would one want to work for and why?

I would like to work with Pantaloon Retail (India) as it offers its employees chance to learn which also aids development of company. It dares to dream out of the box to make a difference in the life of consumers. The company which started as Garment manufacturer now has expanded to retail sector where its methodologies are considered as benchmark. I believe Indianness, Leadership, Adaptability, Respect and humility are key core value that drive success of Pantaloons. For me Pantaloons is an opportunity where there are no boundaries of what you can achieve.
