    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Houston, TX

    I worked at Larsen & Toubro as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The salary as a contractor was average to good. Some of the categories paid by the health insurance were very comprehensive.

    Cons

    There were some odd interactions with HR, some due to cultural differences, and many due to differences of phrasing things. The HR system was probably understaffed, and gave the impression of not being able to complete tasks efficiently, and did not communicate nearly as well as other companies' HR departments I have interacted with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regarding human resources, hire native language speakers familiar with the culture in each of the countries where you have employees to interact with the employees there.
