Horrible and Frustrating

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mumbai (India)

Pros1) 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)

Cons1) 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 Senior Management1) 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
