    Pros

    Learning Curve at proper profiles is steep, almost with non-existant support. New recruits have to ask for directions and will not be spoonfed.

    Cons

    Different divisions relying on different products work in separate cocooned silos with firm glass walls at the lower levels, though information sharing is better at the higher management.
    The company has the reportedly dubious practice of hiring back former employees who've spent considerable time in competitor/MNC companies at astronomical salaries into the upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better Employee Retention Policies.
    Better Appraisal Mechanisms.
    Firmer

    Pros

    Thermax offers good opportunity for graduates to learn in their field of interest. With high standards of safety and value for an employee Thermax makes its own value in the market .

    Cons

    Themax offers great package and training, with liberty of switching departments one can broaden his horizons. Challenging projects with different technology creates a good interest for a young graduate to develop his team skills along with technical expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Site conditions needs to be improved further and coordination between design department and site engineers needs to be strengthened.
