    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Respect, ethics and collaboration/team work are at the core of the organisation. You can feel lot of maturity and professional approach from all leaders. Always aim to institutionalize sustainable practices.

    Cons

    The collaborative and participative approach at times delays the decision making. People needs to be hold accountable for both action & inaction - 'lenient' culture while demanding performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's truly Value Based culture. However, performance and accoutabilities of the outcomes to be rewarded or penalized.

    I have been working at Tata Steel

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to progress and excellent training provided for professionals (not sure is same for operations personnel).

    Cons

    Not very agile, the systems and process are very beurocratic. Business position is not great currently with huge pressure in whole workforce to cut costs and find improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the workforce more control to develop and improve the systems. Remove some if the layers of paperwork and unnecessary work.

    I have been working at Tata Steel

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, low work stress, high pay, freedom, co-operative and friendly colleagues, high focus on ethics and curbing ill-practices, high focus on safety and overall well being of employees. Great place to work for a middle aged person with family. Jamshedpur is a good city to settle down, all amenities of a metro but no stress and crowds. Salaries and perks are great.

    Cons

    Mediocracy is acceptable, no focus on performance, employee growth is very slow and erratic, work is not systematic and improvements happen in patches rather than continuity, people are resistant to change and improvements in existing systems, red-tapism, and plant is polluted with dust and smoke.

    Pros

    TEHP plan is cheap and good.

    Cons

    bad office culture - older people tend to negatively affect the office atmosphere.
    Long working hours-- 24 hours type job.
    80% of problems in some of the plants is due to plants having crossed 1.5 times there life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture needs to be improved, 5 day working system should be established.
