    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Steel Authority of India full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Job security, relaxed hours, centrally regulated leaves, depending on the vertical one is working the company provides a good exposure to the steel sector and market and has opportunities to growth

    Cons

    Time bound promotions, Hierarchical organisation structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The salary compensation currently being practiced is not fair to one's qualifications with a marketing job requiring MBA getting equal compensation for a technical role requiring an engineering graduation. The too stringent hierarchical structure is also suffocating for brilliant candidates

  11.

    I worked at Steel Authority of India full-time

    Pros

    It is a great place to start one's career . There are lots of thing to learn . You work in a group and has a good chance of developing a team and throw up possible leaders . You have challenges al the time and you have to be always on your toes . But in spite of all this you have great opportunity to enjoy life with a social & cultural life in its township .

    Cons

    Life is hard here . If you are looking for a smooth cozy life this may not be the organisation for you . More over , Though there are lots of promotional avenues one has to be in the good book of the boss , merit alone may not be enough . The plant life is a bit of risky , because of the nature of the job if one is not safety conscious .
