    Pros

    The company is working on one of the good metro rail projects in India. That about all, may be the only reason to work here.

    Cons

    The work culture is very unprofessional with rank favouritism and no regard for talent. The management is not bothered about the problems afflicting the company. The HR policies that are imported from the parent L&T group are OK, but the implementation is not uniform and the local policies are dubious. The company HR and management have a habit of not giving a true picture to the candidates at the time of recruitment and go back on their word with impunity. The work-life balance is skewed, with the management forcing late hours and weekends even when the workload doesn't demand it.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    the only reason is L&T provides some comfort zones to it's employers like bus services etc. which is comparatively a bit better than other EPC companies.

    Cons

    many. 1. L&T is not aware to develop it's own proprietary engineering areas, better company should buy the same from international market because company has money. 2. This company has a worst view about skill-set of employees which is comparatively very bad. 3. Lobbies, Lobbies & again Lobbies, stronger your Lobby here, the BEST(?) is your performance, nothing else. 4. This company always try to put people into team work, & the team shall must must have a person who is always oiling his/her boss; no credit is there for individual performance. 5. management pyramid is heavier on top, which is always lowering the efficiencies, in a word, all are managers here, no body is a layman, engineer or even an executive to execute the work. 6. Too much vendor dependent, even small work which can be easily executed by employees.

    Advice to Management

    No advice is available from my end to management.

  9. Good Experience
