Great Experience !! Even after +25 years willing to start all over again in the same Company

Cannot Disclose (Current Employee) New Delhi (India)

ProsExcellent learning ground from basics of steelmaking to the state of the art projects for expansion. Training programmes in the Management Training Institute, Ranchi and each steel plant may be best across industry. The Company is very liberal about training even paranoid in insisting on development of its employees through training mode. Good salary. Good that your hope is always alive that the Company is moving forward and it actually does but not at desired speed may be!!

ConsSynergy between units/plants conflicts with global vision. At junior level salaries are below other PSUs. Delegation is lacking in some areas. Attrition of best talents is high. Hard decisions are lacking at the highest levels. Tendency of complacency deters growth of organisation and individual. Age mix is very adverse and management is indifferent and not aggressive for meeting the challenge. Hence loss of skilled manpower and induction of fresh replacement are out of sync and redeployment of employee absent. Promotions, transfers are not transparent

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve the people. Avoid blind cost cutting and invest boldly and wisely without regard to external pressures. Do not be impatient for results but do not be complacent also. Right decisions and investments will lead to right results. Anticipate the chaos in governance and statutes and stay ahead. Identify and take care of the good employees, boost their morale. This is one of the most difficult tasks. More than 90% problems would be taken care of if this single point is taken care of. Surgically remove and isolate the bad elements in the Company. This is what true rationalisation of manpower should lead to. What is happening today is quite different. The best are leaving and the worst are rising to leadership positions. The squeeze on skill and talent is pointing at unviability in the long run with a strong undercurrent of employee dissatisfaction. Ritualistic assessments of employees must be given a go by. The Company is great but deserves to be handled by the best and not bunches of sycophants and no-good-doers. Let SAIL become a Company to be talked about like Apple or Google or DMRC!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
