    Pros

    Hands on experience with industrial equipments and their maintenance wil help you increase your technical skills. Reason is you don't have efficient third party maintenance team who are self-sufficient. So if you are heading a maintenance team you are assured of adventurous times out there.

    Cons

    But the work culture can be compared to dog eat dog style. You are consistently made to work outside your job description by a superior (at times which violate company SHE rules). Transparency in appraisal system is a alien thing in this company. You can never be sure as to your performance, even if you are a acclaimed super-hero in your department. The appraisal system is played upon by the departmental biggies without any transparency to the sub-ordinates. Leadership and motivation is a hard thing to find in this place. Mid-level and higher level managers don't have a sense of responsibility when it comes to employee guidance. Vision and leadership are totally absent in them.

    Advice to Management

    EMPLOYEE SUSTAINABILITY requires more than proper pay scale. For a organization to be sustainable its employees should be able to find purpose in their work. Grass root level HR activity needs to be done in order to eradicate issues(cancerous to organization) of employees.

    Pros

    Nice Pay grade for a start. Abundant growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Poor work culture. Short sighted view of operating business more evident at grass root level. Difficult to implement ideas and no R & D team at all.

    Advice to Management

    Too many and too frequent changes in system affecting quality of work. Sustainability should not just be a policy.

    I worked at Vedanta Aluminium Limited (More than a year)

    Pros

    High growth opportunity for hard-working people. Huge potential and freedom to perform and build non existent systems which can add substantial value to your business. Very good place if you are a daring leader and can be assertive about ideas and put forth your views without fear of consequences. Such efforts are usually rewarded.

    Cons

    Archaic nature of work culture with a "boss is always right" mentality across organization. However, you can grow phenomenally if you are daring enough to challenge this. Work environment is not particularly good with very less training opportunities. Often the rough edges and immaturities from entry level continue well into managerial roles. Compensation was very good before few years but is not competitive any more in the industry especially with increasing global opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Organization should also look into the valuable contributions of silent contributors who often leave the organization due to lack of recognition. I have known some very honest yet quite individuals who were real assets, leave the organization due to their bossy and often arrogant yet inefficient managers.
