    Pros

    Indian Oil is a very good place for a recent college graduate to learn how a downstream oil industry works. Starting salary for new recruits is very good compared to peers working in other industries with similar job profiles. Decent work-life balance can be expected .Definitely a place to work if you are planning to stay for a long period of time.

    Cons

    Career incentive for engineers who work hard or display extraordinary skills is long term (one can only get promoted every 4 years) . Salary increments are low compared to private companies. Indian Oil has implemented SAP ERP but still relies on old fashioned paper work which is really slow. Not a place to work if your career aspirations are high.

    Advice to Management

    The tendering/ contracting system needs some serious revision .Use of paperless SAP system should be enforced to get things moving faster. DOP for managers and senior managers should be increased.
