    The work culture is good, but R&D work is diminishing and productionisation is the main objective now.

    I have been working at ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization)

    Pros

    Lot to learn in the area of space technology. This experience is unique and limited in the country.

    Cons

    Less than average salary for comparable workload and performance. Older generation taking all the decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is helpless. Its a government organisation and someone from the govt has to take the initiative to improve the welfare of the employees.

    I have been working at ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization)

    Pros

    By no means should this review be taken as a parameter for judging the company ISRO as a whole. I was posted at Shar center of the organisation, so these views can be generalised within some limitations for activities and horticulture of Shar.
    Its is difficult to find any technical work going on here. It is the facility where everything from satellites to stages is brought and assembled. Most so called scientists and engineers are discharging duties of a supervisor and not that of a scientist or even an engineer in their early careers.
    PROs 1) you can see the launch of a 400ton rocket in front of your eyes, from a km far.
    2) rather calm surrounding, though climate is awful, they give respite from city's fast life.

    Cons

    there are many, but to summarise a few.
    1) research is discouraged. Shar's new scientists were not even given time to finish there IITP projects. Awful. Wasn't the case with other centres
    2) Don't come here if you want research
    3) work profile of all engineers except electronics is painful for the body

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do, for God's sake some research at Shar. Else you will spoil ISRO's image forever.

    I worked at ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    It has one of the best technological exposure with maximum optimization. Since it is a central government organization it has provisions accordingly.

    Cons

    It does not meet international standards when it comes to payment and provisions. But can always lead a average middle class life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should improve their application procedure and other processing for recruitment. All students should be given equal opportunities and other experience candidates also to be considered.

    pay is reasonable, but compared to private companies(non-IT) hike is less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some new system of giving promotions to be found out(compared to other Govt. organization policy is good, but still it can be made better)
