    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Will retain you even if you don't have any productive work.
    Few (1 out of 50) managers are good to newcomers

    Cons

    Once you enter as a site engineer you will considered as a supervisor than an engineer. You will have to stand on site even if you don't have anything to do ( just watch what labors are doing).
    Worst job timings.
    No one will care about your interest of work.
    HR people are not co-operative ( It has been a year when I left this company and still haven't received my experience letter)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ask GET about his area of interest otherwise you are ruining his/her career.
    Do consider of revising job timings for site engineers.
