    Pros

    Good Salary comparatively to other Construction Companies Extra Benefits like House Accommodation,Travel Arrangements are given by company It helps you with the experience of dealing with worst case scenario managers Job Security.No much how incompatible you are,yo will be safe with your job.

    Cons

    1. If you are a G.E.T i will highly recommend you not to join this company.Simply put this is a company for Diploma holders. 2. The management especially at sites are narrow minded, stubborn and without any creative ideas. 3. Transparency throughout the company is poor. 4. No concern about the productivity.There only criteria of judging an employee work is by how much time he stays at the office. 5. Performance related Rating is a total sham.No one gets rating according to their work.The only parameter for good rating is you should listen to your boss no matter he is right or wrong. 6. Human Resource is incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    1. Try to make a healthy environment. 2. Working hours should be reduced from 12 hours to 8 hours. 3. A thorough feedback of Senior managers should be taken from their sub-ordinates. 4. Try to bring in good managers.The managers right now are just not capable.

    Very nice culture, facility, people respect, facilities like breakfast-lunch-dinner for second shift employees mainly for workers, bus facility. Most important think you can get core job related to your graduate background.

    Difficult to say still sometimes due to very large organizational structure one may get different department which he/she may not preferred, job location also most of the time non negotiable.

    Advice to Management

    No advice

    Pros

    1.) Salary is best in the construction industry for beginners. 2.) Perks and emoluments are sufficient to give your family a moment of joy.

    Cons

    1.) You don't get time to lead a cheerful life on the hard earned money. 2.) Your family enjoys, or may be not (in true sense), because you spend 13 to 14 hours daily at the construction site. 3.) Even if you are forced to work on Sundays, you are not allowed to compensate the leaves. 4.) The middle management is occupied by highly inefficient and ineffective people who are obstinate to the core. 5.) No more than 5 to 6 new comers catch up with a leader, but most of you will find your managers demotivating. 6.) Roles and responsibilities are not defined so you may not like the idea of doing just anything and everything. 7.) There is no transparency in the proceedings related to performance linked rewards. 8.) The biggest drawback is that you will be distressed due to the bad environment which is not at all professional. 9.) Human resources team dances to the tune of bullies. 10.) If you love your family and friends, don't join this company.

    Advice to Management

    1.) Define roles and responsibilities of every employee in the organisation clearly. 2.) Don't spend hefty amounts on leadership programs for managers. Screen their profiles before preparing the final list. And remember, leaders are born and not made. Instead, train the highly skilled junior level managers or employees to make them capable of handling global competition. 3.) If you are concerned about the future of L&T, groom GET's, 90% of whom leave the company simply because the middle management can't digest their competence and intelligence level. 4.) Diploma engineers should never be given bigger roles. They are the ones who have spoiled the environment because of the narrow minded ideology and inability to think and act. 5.) Try to clean the environment where performance rating is given on the basis of extra hours spent by the employees and not on productivity. It has become a tradition at L&T that people stay for long hours at site and do absolutely nothing. Hence, working hours shall be defined. If work has to continue for 24 hours, shifts shall be assigned to the employees. But each shift shall not exceed 8 hours in any case. The ones staying for long hours shall be demoted instead. Focus shall be on productivity and effectiveness of an employee. 6.) You take pride in ethics of the company, but in real sense, you are the most inethical organisation in the country. You don't treat girls equally. It has been predetermined that girls can't work at site because they are not physically strong. Who are you to decide it ? Leave it on the girls to decide that what they want and what not. Give equal opportunity to girls. I abhor the ideology of the senior level managers for this.

    Pros

    1. Exposure to diverse activities 2. Experience on human behaviour 3. Systematic documentation

    Cons

    1. Long working hours... work even on Sundays 2. Salary is less compared to the work extraction from the employee 3. Uneven delegation of responsibilities among the members of the same team 4. No support & guidance from managers... if the company goes down then it is because of some worst, nonsense & inefficient managers who are burdens to the company 4. Employees of good academics & talent are misutilized & underutilized...i.e they are made fools

    Advice to Management

    1. Upgrade salary 2. Give proper value to engineers & use them like engineers....you people ignore that engineers are used like supervisors & clerks... that's why young energetic engineers leave within few months & years.. 3. Create a transparent monitoring system for employee performance evaluation
