    I have been working at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My department in particular required the people to travel to customer sites and work on the field all the time. This gave me great customer handling experience. Also since I love travelling I liked this job. My boss and the department head were super cool guys and didn't let me take any pressure. This I think increased my productivity.

    Cons

    Travelling budget is low. Does not allow flight ticket allowance even for longer journeys.
    Sometimes I had to go to customer sites just for the sake of customer service.
