    Pros

    Flexible hours, work life balance.

    Cons

    The team leads that I dealt with on a daily basis... many had major integrity issues. I was asked many times to "cut-corners" relating to the US Government regulated Export approval process. Other times, I witnessed team leads belittle their staff in a public forum... When I asked the employees why they do not say something to L&Ts Management... the response was always the same.. they were concerned if they did.... L&T would send them back to India.

    Advice to Management

    Those that are on assignment in the U.S.A.... L&T should train your employees of the US culture and adhere to the US employment laws prior to coming to the states, and provide those here on a VISA with more then 72 hours to pack up and be on a flight back to India.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Larsen & Toubro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not yet seen any pros

    Cons

    A lot many cons are there. After joining this company I have seen only cons and cons. So I can not tell you how unpredictable to work here. Every one is working for progress but here there wont be any progress. You can not forecast your future, can not plan in a good way. Every thing is depend on the salary but salary is like a slave worker salary. So it is very hard to explain about a good thing of this company but easy to show a lot of bad thing of this company. Politics and references on growing is like the company patent and right, as this is running inside the company. So all I can say is, to seeing future in this company is a wrong decision. (A pain can only feel by the Victim not by the Culprit.)
