I have been working at Larsen & Toubro full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

One of the most professionally managed companies in India where every employer from CMD down to Trainee Engineer is part owner of the company. Not even TATA Companies can boast of this. As there are no owners to pander to or curry favour with, there is healthy competition and equal opportunities to perform and prosper .

Cons

Home grown career starters thro' campuses are definitely more pampered than lateral entrants however talented and experienced they might be. Another jolt for lateral entrants is that the take home salary is usually lesser than what they were enjoing in their previous company inspite of joining with a supposed 40% hike. This is because of ECAL & ESOP schemes which are not clearly explained at the time of interview by HR and you get shock of your life when you receive your first pay cheque. Another aspect, particularly in Constuction group is the hours you are expected to put in leaving hardly any time for your family or society. It is worse if you are posted in sites.

Advice to Management

Allow time for lateral entrants to get used to the ghostly working hours. HR to explain salary structures in more transparent ways and exactly inform expected take home pay to avoid heart burn. The apparent favouritism for civil engineers over mechanical or electrical engineers should be curbed. This is only true of Construction IC and not L&T as a whole.
