    Pros

    1. Relaxed environment. Homely feeling (stable resting place for satisfied lot) 2. Good learning from seniors (depends upon pro-active person - both the learner and mentor) 3. The senior the management goes, the more qualified and experience the chair-holders are. 4. Documentation of everything, process and all.

    Cons

    1. Time counting/logging. Flexibility required (as long as tasks are completed in time) 2. Pathetic payscale structures. Pay variations significant across levels. Can demotivate execution staff/juniors specifically. 3. Appraisal are pre-thought of, so expect less. 4. Peanuts in increment. One'd feel being last in race among peers in other co's with similar designations and experience. 5. No drill down for work credit. 6. Ultra-pathetic HR. Old veterans and un-cooperative HR staff, especially, for the person who is out of the organisation. No support for Form-16, PF transfers, Relieving letters, and other similar documents. Lethargic HR work style. (You drop multiple emails, calls, they wont still bother to reply. 7. Company ladden with humongous debt, wake up call for prospective joiners.

    Advice to Management

    1. Be more proactive. 2. Appraise as per performance. Try to gauge why employees are frustrated. (take independent opinions, immediate supervisor should not ask why the employee wants to leave, that kills independent opinions) 3. Pay as per industry norms. 4. Make culture employee friendly, not suffocation friendly.

    I worked at GMR Group full-time

    Pros

    The biggest benefit of working in the company is the excellent care it takes for its employees. There are lots of employee engagement activities held which will enable you to bond well others across different departments and also locations. The company being family owned and run, also treats its employees as an extended family. Though being a site engineer, never faced any of the out of normal hardships that any engineer would face at other construction sites. Part of it was due to working in a client company and the rest due to the company's benefits and perks. in short, it was an ideal working place for any fresher to learn and grow without much pressure.

    Cons

    Though there were no major issues in the day to day functioning of the company, Nepotism was the only significant vice that was visible. But having said that you will never face any problems in your work once you are an employee there. The company is obsessed with rules, ethics, morals and codes. Though these are good to follow but too much persistence on some particular set of rules make it look old fashioned.
