    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.

    Hectic working hours

    There is no place for u, if u r not good in politics
    Number of hours you spend on sites are taken into account rather than your work
    GETs feel under-utilized
    Company sucks the life out of you
    no social life
    forget about your family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please dont hire talented students from prestigious college, coz they leave your company anyway once they realize that they are nothing but sheeps. Hire only diploma ppl coz they are ready to work for u in those conditions
