    Former Employee - Associate Manager in Jharsuguda (India)

    I worked at Vedanta Resources full-time (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
