    Pros

    Till date there are excellent opportunities available for skill enhancements with on the job and inhouse and outside training opportunities for all technical employees.

    Cons

    Pathetic work envoronment with no transparency and favourites securing all the promotions and better pay rise. Plagiarism rules and honest workers are never recognised.

    Advice to Management

    Organisation is bleeding profusely, so look after honest workers otherwise organisation will be left with sycophants.

    Pros

    Good place to build a career if you belong to the Technical teams. Great and sometimes the most expensive international trainings are on offer for Geotech teams. For the rest, well they do organise some great parties!

    Cons

    The list is too long but let me just give a glimpse of what is on offer. The work is purely clerical in nature (though most of HR does seem so to many!). Inputs and ideas are not appreciated as my boss always thought he knew the answer to every question. A big yes man, he wouldn't spare a thought before blaming his subordinates for his follies despite knowing that the subordinates were a bunch of MTs. Lot of immaturity demonstrated by the HR folks - a result of the pedigree most belonged to. As far as career opportunities are concerned, there aren't too many. Career growth is tenure driven but that's the case in most organisations. Learning opportunities as an HR is completely missing, both in terms of on-the-job as well as external trainings.

    Advice to Management

    Rehire your HR team or enrol the current team into an HR course
