    Big brand name, Well Certified company Very less work load for trainees, As far as my 4 years are concerned do find much Pros

    Cons

    Huge salary discrimination at same designation level from unit to unit. Goa zone of Vedanta unit is very poor in employee satisfaction terms. Same level Engineer's salary difference is huge for Goa zone (SESA) from HZL , VAL, BALCO . Poor training, Poor employee satisfaction, hell lot of work load for frontline engineers

    Advice to Management

    Rethink over salary structure across the group, Employee satisfaction should also be taken care of despite collecting certificates. Basic facilities also lacks for staffs and workers
