    Pros

    Management more like family, understands personal problems. Rewards performance, appreciates hard work through awards and promotions.

    Cons

    The salary structure is poor. Competitors provide double and triple of what is offered by this company, which causes a high defection rate.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the package to fresh engineers. Oil and gas sector is gaining momentum in the middle east, so invest more in this section.

    Pros

    Here, you will find an entrepreneurial environment, where you are given certain authorities to take decisions. As far as learning is concerned, well yes, you do get to learn.

    Cons

    The company, and thus the employees have limited growth. At a certain point, you WILL GET SATURATED. Make sure you leave within 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources is not a game and employees are not sheep. Please make sure that correct people are assigned to the correct department. Random deployment is whats pushing the company down.

    Pros

    Lot to learn in one place. Their are no restriction on what you can see & what you cannot. As a engineer complete freedom is given to you. If one can spend at least first 5 to 6 yrs in company, lot of higher roles and responsibilities can be given.

    Cons

    No specific work timings on site (Mostly more than 12 hrs daily), Sometimes unnecessary extra pressure, Working culture depends mostly on how your boss is, unbalance work & personal life. No time for looking what is going outside L&T

    Advice to Management

    Time has come to change a strategy by creating a favorable conditions for talented , young & dynamic engineers who wish to stay long with the company but does not due to above listed issues.

    Pros

    My department in particular required the people to travel to customer sites and work on the field all the time. This gave me great customer handling experience. Also since I love travelling I liked this job. My boss and the department head were super cool guys and didn't let me take any pressure. This I think increased my productivity.

    Cons

    Travelling budget is low. Does not allow flight ticket allowance even for longer journeys.
    Sometimes I had to go to customer sites just for the sake of customer service.
