    L&T Railway Business Group

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Delhi (India)

    ProsRBG is new group which was made in 2007. Most of the employee strength belong to 2 type of categories. One which has mostly mangers, AGM & DGM in the age of 38-50. Others category has great numbers of GETs & young engineers.
    As young engineer you get exposure to different functions of work. You could apply your own mind.
    Work culture is not bad & if your boss is nice, you can enjoy freedom at work.

    ConsSalary is quite lower than industry standards.
    RBG's culture does not exhibit great professionalism.
    Scope for technical learning is very less. Most of the scope is constricted to business development, project management & working on excel, word & outlook.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease take care of young engineers, groom them, enable them with more & better technical skills so that they could become more effective while doing their job. And also please increase their salaries, please.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible HR, ageing management

    Graduate Engineer Trainee (Current Employee)
    Vadodara (India)

    ProsQuantity of work and responsibility

    ConsHR nonexistent, all work no play, people not based at office locations ignored, unfair rewards / appraisals, no proper dialogue between management and employees, plagued by resignations of campus recruits, only the worst stay on, zero classroom training, no benefits for employees at remote location project sites, 'company policy' used as a defence for almost anything.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou cannot lead a young work force using ideas from the 80 's and 90's , Move with the times.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
