    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 Management

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

    Somewhat professional office, at least the office is nicely decorated

    Always changing environment, poor management (never available) lack of delivery skilled managers off shore in India

    Advice to Management

    Get better delivery managers in India and get them to come to US for client /projects for long term...Put managers in place who are able to travel/VISA for long term projects. As well, get more VISA ready and US based delivery people.....

    Pros

    The company is working on one of the good metro rail projects in India. That about all, may be the only reason to work here.

    Cons

    The work culture is very unprofessional with rank favouritism and no regard for talent. The management is not bothered about the problems afflicting the company. The HR policies that are imported from the parent L&T group are OK, but the implementation is not uniform and the local policies are dubious. The company HR and management have a habit of not giving a true picture to the candidates at the time of recruitment and go back on their word with impunity. The work-life balance is skewed, with the management forcing late hours and weekends even when the workload doesn't demand it.
