  1. Good Experience but low salary

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting and "first time in India" projects with unexpected roles, a lot of learning is expected. Accommodation is provided for almost nothing to all engineering working on site.

    Cons

    Though the work is good, the salary for an engineer at the entry-level is very low, even compared to the competitors.

    Advice to Management

    The training program at the entry-level is informative and useful. Though the salary should be increased if turnover has to be managed.
