    I have been working at VA Tech Wabag full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I started my career as a GET in this company. More emphasis is given on training the freshers however flaws can be avoided. One has to be more receptive to identify areas of growth and concentrate on learning. Not much of challenges in every department. Multi National and hence opportunities to go abroad provided good performance.

    Cons

    Par salary with the market and the job. You cant expect much here as your job also will be of that level only. However other benefits through training are equally competent. Overall, a good place to work provided you like the domain of the company and your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training allocation needs to be redefined. One has to be put in their own field first rather than expecting them to be an all-rounder right from the beginning of their career.

    The company is very much people focussed. Generally quite open and transparent. The company has an elaborate performance management system.

    Lot of politics.
