    I worked at L&T Power (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good HR practices with relation to employee engagement and training needs. Clear description of roles and responsibilities. Facilities provided for employees are comparable/ better than peers in the industry. Technologically superior in the field. Good pay and performance rewards, but only if you stay long enough and cross the executive/ engineer levels. Sincere attempts at maintaining work life balance in the management office campus.

    Cons

    Utter scarcity of projects due to poor vision, leading to retrenchment of good quality staff. Poor growth opportunities due to lack of projects. No policy on employee retention, or transfer of employees with little/ no work to other units of L&T that are hiring. Location of single management office without any branches elsewhere in India, especially closer to the offices of its main customers (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai etc). Pay is decent only beyond the entry executive levels; there will be tremendous work pressure and politics involved before you can cross these into the management levels. Little to no respect/ higher education support to Diploma holders. Present working sites are far flung in remote villages, where there is no question of work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    It is evident that the thermal power sector in India is stagnating/ contracting. No customer wants to offer jobs to this company because of the focus of government on renewable energy, as well as higher costs, of which the main component is high manufacturing cost of critical machinery. Despite this, there is no policy/ vision from the management to cut costs here, instead opting to retrench staff and save money. It is better to let hardworking employees with experience transition to other units of L&T that require them, than let them stay on without any obvious growth paths, or professional improvement.


  7. "A great company"

    I have been working at L&T Power full-time

    Pros

    HR processes are firmly in place. Benefits are very good, specially medicine bills which are paid on actual. Employees across the organisation are well behaved and driven by systems and processes. IT is used widely across the organisation, facilitating the employees to do their job smoothly.

    Cons

    There are too many layers in the promotion system. Though the company is big and complex to manage, its complexity need not get reflected in the said system.

    Advice to Management

    Though robust systems are in place, there is always room to make the systems more robust.

    At site you are just as supervisor

    Advice to Management

    Please don't allocate work to employees on the bases of business need but also take their interest and health problems during posting on site
