I have been working at Steel Authority of India full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent learning ground from basics of steelmaking to the state of the art projects for expansion. Training programmes in the Management Training Institute, Ranchi and each steel plant may be best across industry. The Company is very liberal about training even paranoid in insisting on development of its employees through training mode. Good salary. Good that your hope is always alive that the Company is moving forward and it actually does but not at desired speed may be!!

Cons

Synergy between units/plants conflicts with global vision. At junior level salaries are below other PSUs. Delegation is lacking in some areas. Attrition of best talents is high. Hard decisions are lacking at the highest levels. Tendency of complacency deters growth of organisation and individual. Age mix is very adverse and management is indifferent and not aggressive for meeting the challenge. Hence loss of skilled manpower and induction of fresh replacement are out of sync and redeployment of employee absent. Promotions, transfers are not transparent

Advice to Management

Involve the people. Avoid blind cost cutting and invest boldly and wisely without regard to external pressures. Do not be impatient for results but do not be complacent also. Right decisions and investments will lead to right results. Anticipate the chaos in governance and statutes and stay ahead. Identify and take care of the good employees, boost their morale. This is one of the most difficult tasks. More than 90% problems would be taken care of if this single point is taken care of. Surgically remove and isolate the bad elements in the Company. This is what true rationalisation of manpower should lead to. What is happening today is quite different. The best are leaving and the worst are rising to leadership positions. The squeeze on skill and talent is pointing at unviability in the long run with a strong undercurrent of employee dissatisfaction. Ritualistic assessments of employees must be given a go by. The Company is great but deserves to be handled by the best and not bunches of sycophants and no-good-doers. Let SAIL become a Company to be talked about like Apple or Google or DMRC!

    I worked at Steel Authority of India full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance and low work pressure in most of the cases.
    Long term benefits are good and a good PF will be there by retirement.
    Steel cities have wider roads, less rush, different from busy life of metros.

    Cons

    No incentive for better performance. Promotions are same for all employees till senior manager (4 promotions in 15 years).
    Pollution in plants. I have become asthmatic after working in the plant.
    Lower salaries than other psu's at junior management level.
    Middle management focuses more on amount of time spent rather than output given.

    Advice to Management

    Have a dynamic promotion policy.
    Should make salaries of junior managers equal to that of other maratna psu's
    Must differentiate efficient people from others.
