    I have been working at Haldia Petrochemicals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Best place for freshers. Lot of knowledgeable peers and seniors to guide.
    Bonhomie amongst team members many of whom go out of way to help colleagues (specially in job related problems).
    One of the best HR supports incase of hospitalisations and medical emergencies.
    Very good finished products.

    Cons

    Need for a refinery tie up for raw material with possibly profit sharing on the sales with the supplier.
    Lack of assertiveness in general among the middle and lower management.
    Lack of internal communication.
    Absence of any appraisal system. Current system is an eye wash to promote the blue eyed boys, giving rise to a breed who have flourished through "yes boss-ism"
    Delay in decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the manpower as an asset. The people who are leaving or have left are irreplaceable. It is a fact that no one is indispensable but why lose out on real talents when all they need is a little recognition and salaries at par with industry.
    Irrespective of the outcome of the understanding between the promoters, I believe it is the quality of manpower which will make or break HPL.
    Instead of treating each Department as personal fiefdom let there be free flowing of ideas and systems to ensure decision making. Then only we shall reach the land where the mind is without fear and the head held high...

    I worked at Haldia Petrochemicals full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    As far as HPL is concern, It is very good company, good technology and good working environment. HPL is having good working platform for new employees from other than petrochemical industries. HPL township (HREL) is a peaceful place to live.

    Only problem is promoters. They are making bad impact on company and making huge loss to the company.

    Conclude your dispute as soon as possible. Make HPL and HPLites happy
