    I worked at Essar Oil full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Excellent compensation compared to peers
    Good people within teams
    Nice working environment once you settle in
    Quite a senior group of employees with lots leaving so potential for rapid progression

    Cons

    Management can not make a decision to save their life
    Heads of department are far too out of touch with what is happening within departments
    Leadership team drags decisions out whilst hiring consultant after consultant
    Too many graduates/interns hired to meet HR policies doing nothing
    Too many employees overall, a decision isn't made, someone else is hired to help with the decision, the decision still isn't made and the process continues

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision for once. Learn what is going on within each department so you can actually improve the work done within the department. Also cut down the fat, too many employees and productivity isn't great. Restructuring of heads of departments is needed as they are too out of touch with the teams daily work.

    Excellent company for a fresher,as well as for a experienced employee to work. Scopes for learning,self developing. High Level of team work and senor to junior at level people are very friendly here & its the most important thing for a good work life.Salary also good,you get what you deserve.

    Cons

    Tremendous amount of pressure out side the vadhinar refinery, such as at the depots where employees are working, no work & personal life balance, no foxed working hours, need to stay working until unless all the jobs are done at the depots.

    Advice to Management

    management should bring more beneficial policies for employees working at depots, should provide more human power for smooth operation ,
