Pros

1) Great people to work with though it can vary from department to department
2) Laid back attitude and casual environment
3) Typical 9 to 5 job, though Saturday is half day working so no worry of work-life balance at all.
4) Good brand value outside of L&T
5) Little to no office politics (as everyone knows that there is no credit for claiming good work)

Cons

1) HR sucks big time. They have absolutely no clue about HR. Highly employee-unfriendly policies.
2) Time bound promotion like in govt company, no credit for good work. No career planning. Your designation is directly proportional to your age.
3) Terribly low salary - peanuts. Its about 70%-250% lower than market standards depending upon your profile

Advice to Management

1) Fire your current HR and hire some good people who know what HR is. Have principle based decision making and not the other way round.
2) Pay competitive salaries by bench marking across industry
3) Have career planning and credit for good work.

    Pros

    You will learn hardships of life. The only positive thing is that I have Experienced the Worst. So anything after this always will be better.

    Cons

    HR have their own imaginary Policies. Unsupportive HR. Even My own Department was unsupportive not only to me but to all in my Cadre. No appreciation whatsoever even if i worked 12 Hrs/Day * 7 Days. Yes u heard it right.. 84 hrs/week, yet getting paid for 42 hrs/week(7hrs*6 days). My Half Day salary was cut as soon as i am late 2 mins. Very Low PLR. Lowest Salary compare to other industries of same level.
    No promotions for first 4 Years Except for Management Trainees.

    Advice to Management

    One advice to Top management people are that number of intakes should not be 500% more than what you require. Because you are destroying the careers of those extra youngsters just for the benefit of your company.
