    I have been working at GAIL full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunity for beginners to mid level professionals. Excellent learning opportunity if you intend to work hard. Pay is good at beginner and entry level.

    Cons

    Sluggish, uncertain and very time bound growth. Irrespective of the effort, one is never sure about his promotions. Fixed minimal annual hike in salary. Sword of transfer looms on your head every year during March April because of unreasonable transfer policies.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent bunch of hardworking individuals land up every year at GAIL. Don't get them involved in and make them do miscellaneous work taking away their focus from the work that actually needs to be done.

    Pros

    Various opportunities to try new things - vendor management, project management, operations, contract management, business development, etc. Great work life balance.

    Some of the work locations are remote and far from major cities, making it difficult to stay with your family. Salary hike is not much as its a Government undertaking.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees working at remote site locations to address their concerns. Job allocation should be done by assessing individual strengths of employees, rather than random allotment.
