    Pros

    It gives a very good training to its Graduate Engineer Trainees. It is very professional in its approach. It is highly respected in its industry circle.

    Cons

    It has to evolve its HR function so as to bring more employee satisfaction in terms of appraisal framework. It is not very aggressive in its pay structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should build a structure to groom future managerial talent from a very early stage in their career, and should give them a rotational experience across various domains.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Vadodara (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Vadodara (India)

    I have been working at L&T full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    L&T is a very good place to learn. The nitty-grittys of any project, only Technical details, are learned very well at L&T. I was associated with L&T-Chiyoda for few years & with L&T later. It was a great place to learn.. (Acronym LTC sands for : Learning and Training Centre)
    Every Mechanical engineer shall be a part of L&T in his career.

    Cons

    A correction : "Every Mechanical engineer shall be a part of L&T in his career.... but only for a while..!!" The longer you stay with L&T, the more you get paralysed by its bureaucracy and lack of decision making. It's a great place to learn "meeting-room-tennis". People pass on the responsibilities and decision making things on each other so ridiculously, that after a few years, you start to realize, whether this is the L&T what people talk about !.. LTC or L&T or L&T-Chiyoda stands for Learn, get Trained & Change for a better job.. Do NOT STAY with L&T... L&T pays decently to trainees, but for equi-potential lateral joinees, L&T is a place next to hell.. So if you are employed with some organisation right now, and thinking to switch to LTC or L&T, you are gonna be a Hell-boy.. (My Buoy..!!!) Good Luck..
    If you have a decent work ex (> 7 Years), and you join L&T, you would come to know, how orthodox or even Juvenile the thinking of L&T is...!! Decisions are still made by the grey-haired fellas, unaware of new management philosophies and hence the risk appetite is negligible.
    (Advice to people : Go to L&T, get trained AND GET MOVING...L&T tries to instill falsified Loyalty.. don't fall prey to it.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Larsen & Toubro might have never thought L&T to be what it is today.. A multi million dollar organization.. But to sustain it, is upto the management's decision and their ability to retain people, Unfortunately, this seems a fading possibility..
