    I worked at GAIL as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Engineers were smart and cooperative as compared to egoistic managers. pretty rigid hierarchy characteristic of a government office.
    Office is good with a functioning library which offers titles in fiction and magazines also.

    Cons

    Poor office culture. Style of functioning is that of a typical government office.
    Intern was not structured. They did not expect anything from me which was good as well as bad.

    locations too remote even to think about cities, useless training and orientation programme for new joinees throughout the year, wasteful project assignments given to trainees,wastage of time and resources, job culture not fit for ambitious and well-deserving candidates, even doesn't suits bachelors, good if you are atleast 35 years old.

    Pros

    The package is best given, office culture is also very friendly, Work life balance is good with gud medical & other facilities

    Cons

    Many plants are remotely located, which is the main problem for people working in such locations, having no proper connectivity to proper facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management provides training twice a year can help people at bit better to enjoy the life rather than giving training only once a year.
