    Pros

    Competitive work environment which enables the employees to gain a lot of work experience.

    Cons

    Job location is surely a matter of concern. Personal growth is not happening in an appreciable way because it is difficult to maintain a balance between professional and personal life. Recent changes in HR policies has narrowed down the chances of professional growth. percentage hike in salary is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more transparency in HR policies regarding appraisal review process. Increase the percentage hike in salary.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Jharsuguda (India)

    I worked at Vedanta Aluminium Limited full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relatively flat structure. Good connectivity with the senior management with quick promotions for exceptionally good employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes bosses can be very rude and occasions of verbal abuse and profanity are commonplace. No structured training process and the first 5 months of training is actually no learning and just doing. No feedback from managers apart from negative motivation by threatening bad reviews if performance is not improved. Work conditions inside the plant are pathetic with very low regard to safety concerns. Production is given priority over quality and worker health and safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to employee development. This does not mean send them to one day personality development workshop. Ask the managers to take out time from their schedules to have one on one sessions. Every person in the company cares for nothing more than money! Monetary compensation is not enough to keep people motivated. Need to create a healthier work culture and comfortable place for new employees to want to stay back. more than 80% of the people who joined in my batch at Vedanta left within 3 years. That definitely calls for better management.
