    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Will retain you even if you don't have any productive work.
    Few (1 out of 50) managers are good to newcomers

    Cons

    Once you enter as a site engineer you will considered as a supervisor than an engineer. You will have to stand on site even if you don't have anything to do ( just watch what labors are doing).
    Worst job timings.
    No one will care about your interest of work.
    HR people are not co-operative ( It has been a year when I left this company and still haven't received my experience letter)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ask GET about his area of interest otherwise you are ruining his/her career.
    Do consider of revising job timings for site engineers.
