    ProsA lot of exposure in terms of training, like, motivating and trusting employees to work and deal with vendors,no matter whether a trainee or an intern.Great learning zone for freshers and development zone for experienced people.

    Conscut offs for entering l&t is very high. if you are an average student but good practical knowledge,, there is no chance you'll get through

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep cut offs for freshers low. everybody should get a chance to enter in the firm.
