    I worked at Bsnl full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company has the best technical staff any telecom company would or should have. Even though currently running in losses, it has the capability to come back to its old glory.

    Cons

    The compensation is good on par with IT employees, but there are staff who are simply sitting and monthly getting. Being a Government organization, taking action on unproductive staff is highly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Request the Management to introduce performance based salary hikes

    I worked at Bsnl as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people here make a personal connection to you. The company values are high and all employees seem to believe in them.

    Cons

    Employees just don't wish to do what they are supposed to do. They are just doing it reluctantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees seem like good people but they are just misplaced across departments. A person good in management is teaching. Try and rethink about how company is to be restructured.
