Unbelievable,because as per the cobra beer & its top to bottom sales &marketing team inclusive their colaba mumbai based corporate office staff the performance,communication,etc are not up to the mark,like peoples from liquor industry & trade expect,from a MNC like Cobra beer.
Well,like Cobra Present CEO Miss poonam chandel controling their operation,&selecting those,do not understand even till today that what is their aim&objective,then i have some doubt whether these present peoples of indian territory will cobra survive over the next three years.
But lastly i would say God bless them.
