    Training period for interns must be extended. Its a huge company so, students should be given more time to explore various equipment and processes.

    Ease the process of offering internships and job opportunities

    I have been working at Bharat Heavy Electricals

    Pros

    I got do what i liked, Some people in the management were actually great and enthusiastic to share what they knew

    Cons

    No practical component in internship or summer college experience. I would call their internship program a useless exercise at best. Other students as well as BHEL do it as a formality.

    I worked at Bharat Heavy Electricals

    Pros

    Internship through referral. The overall experience is good if you get some good project and show interest towards learning. The employees are helpful and they have a nice work culture.

    Cons

    People don't work unless there's some pressure. You will get the feel of a typical government office with most of the people chit chatting.
