    The experience was good. They provide ample independence to the employees in taking technical decisions.

    Executive Engineer (Former Employee) Mumbai (India)

    ProsLargest Engineering company in India. 30th rank in Global EPC contractors worldwide. Personal growth is benefited under the leadership of experienced seniors.

    ConsThe compensation or the salary offerings are not to the mark as compared with its competitors. The growth is slowed as we have large Que of the employees awaiting the lion's share.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease look into the inflation going on around the country and do increase the pay slips by debatable margins. Stop being miser to the employees and strengthening the company's balance sheet.
