    Pros

    Young dynamic team with options of working on your own. Growth path can be good for some.

    Location is a huge problem. Work life balance is affected due to no working hour limits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should bring in more transperencies in the policy & should have better evaluation system to keep good employees

    Former Employee - Associate Manager in Jharsuguda (India)

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

    Pros

    Engineers have a lot of responsibilities early and if you are a self learning it can be really good. The compensation is really good and competitive.

    Cons

    The work conditions are not very conducive to healthy living. Being in the middle of nowhere it is hard to socialize with anyone but company people which to some might be too restrictive. The bosses can be very demanding at time and there is no coaching or mentoring what so ever in the company. There is a strong learn or perish system also responsible for Vedanta's attrition rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better mentors and leaders for the company is very important. There is a need for a clear path for all engineers entering Vedanta regarding their personal development. Appraisals need to be much more transparent and a big push for a large middle management which is almost non existent in Vedanta

    Pros

    Jharsuguda as a complex is filled with opportunities and if you get a chance to work here, dont miss it. great salaries, good people, peaceful isolated place for the ones who wish to stay away from civilization. This company Pays very well

    Cons

    Haphazard work life balance if you are not from nearby cities, job allocation are at random, low promotion opportunities and if you are not an Engineer or do not have a 6 - 8 Years work Ex (Incase of Lateral hiring) Pl do not join, this company has nothing to offer to you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review certain policies, listen to what your people are saying, at times the lowest cost product should not always be selected as somewhere quality matters, work location and area of interest preferances should be considered

    Pros

    Great company to learn and apply concepts you learnt in college. The best part is the amount of challenges and opportunities you get to learn more. No matter whats your experience is, They give you big projects if show some character and maturity to handle. Learnt a lot on resource management through handling projects early in my career.

    Cons

    I dint find anything like a negative aspect since I loved my stint in Vedanta resources.

    I worked at Vedanta Resources full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lot expected as soon as you join. You will learn very fast which is good if you can keep up.
    Salary is good considering accommodation is provided.
    Came across some very passionate upper management people. More like exceptions though but still inspiring.
    Lots of training provided.

    Cons

    No social life.
    Locations are generally bad but depends where you are coming from.
    Lower management co-workers not very passionate. Some complaining non-stop.
    Promotions are hard to come by and you start making real money only after say 5 years which is dumb as the good ones will already leave the company by then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't throw you GETs into the frying pan right away.
    The change of guard should be gradual.
