    I have been working at Steel Authority of India

    Pros

    You have huge opportunities to excel in your work, ultimately leading to the tangible and intangible benefits to the company. While your good work may not get always rewarded duly, you still have job satisfaction of fetching monetary benefits to the public exchequer, the company in owned by Govt of India.Compensation and perks are good.

    Cons

    Being a huge company, innovation and improvements take place slowly, due to multiplicity of ideas and opinions, and arriving at unanimity before making a decision takes time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should a more objective method of identifying talent, its contribution to the company, proper facilitation of reward to the deserving employees in the company.

    I worked at Steel Authority of India as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a trainee at SAIL. So my tenure at sail was only some around 40 days.
    I was given projects to do which actually do not add to the knowledge of a student from commerce background.
    but there are some pros to it
    1. Good Brand Name.
    2. Flexible working hours.
    3. Work from home in some cases.

    Cons

    1. very less learning opportunities because of data confidentiality.
    2. no stipend for the interns not evening traveling expenses are covered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stipend should be provided at least for travelling expenses and more attention to trainee's knowledge improvement.

    Pros

    growth in this company is quite satisfying as i have seen top management people giving their whole life to this company and that does show the growth as well as job satisfaction sail provides. Being in top 7 psus of india, sail brings its own charm to attract young talent across the country.

    Cons

    Being a plant nature job, some might find it difficult to work with and also the job location specifically asansol(WB) does prove difficult sometimes as city life is not that appealing.
