    I worked at Haldia Petrochemicals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work environment is friendly for learning & development, Open culture, Cooperative senior staff, Very good work/ life balance, Excellent township to stay for, Family friendly environment.. ISO 9001 certified company. Polymer product quality is really good & recognized in the national market. A very good library inside plant premises will help you update yourself with technical magazines, Handbooks & International Standards. Management is showing their intention for Business diversification.

    Cons

    Salary is relatively low as per market standard. Local politics is at times disturbing normal plant operation. Performance management system needs improvement as KPI is not well defined. Attrition rate is relatively high. Higher management doesn't give justified value to their high performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Improve Performance Management System to achieve unbiased employee evaluation. Salary & Benefits need to be improved.

    I have been working at Haldia Petrochemicals (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pros

    Visible Petrochemical Industry in Eastern Region (Good Geographical Location)
    Accessible to Senior Management Easier to put forward Issues and Ideas
    HREL Township (HPL Employee Colony) Ambiance is just Excellent
    Presence of Knowledgeable People although very Less in Nos
    Quality of its Product is Excellent and Many are Benchmark

    Cons

    Cons

    First and Foremost HR Policy should be in Place (No HR Policy or Real HR Personnel)
    Salary Disparity is Worst and Lowest among any Related Industries (Leaving a Few)
    Huge Salary Gap Between Top Management with Middle Management/Lower Management
    Promotional Disparity (Few Got 6 where as few 3 Promotions in Same Period of Time)
    HR Department is the Worst and Reiterated by none other than the Promoters
    Top Management and HR Hand in Gloves to each other for above Disparity
    Strong HR Policy, Salary Parity and Positional Parity is most Important
    HR and Top Management Successfully Fools Promoters of HPL

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management (Promoters of the Company but not to Top Management as they are the Most Beneficial of the Salary and Positional Disparity)
    Salary Parity and Positional Parity based on Working Experience, Educational Experience and Actual Performance Appraisal with VERY strong HR Policy is the need of the Hour.
    Retain HPLities with Immediate Salary Restructure and Recruit Related Good Peoples.

    (Promoters should sent a Strong Message Mainly to HR Department and HR Personnel that "They are not Owners but only Employees like any other Employee of the Organisation)

    (Promoters should always have a Question Mark with Top Management's Activity and Evil Intentions on All Decision Making Processes which is only Targeted for Own Benefits Only)

    (Glassdoor: If Possible, Pass on this Message to Promoters i.e Dr Purnendu Chatterjee for better Future of HPL)
