    I worked at Lahore Development Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Acceptable salary, good job security, some departments have clean work and good working conditions. try to get posted in records, admin,education or C&I if you ever get selected for it.
    but its an awesome place to work if you have powerful political connections or if you have a devious mind and can create good connections with property dealers and a particular cohort of white collar theifs working in upper management.

    Cons

    The managment problems in this organization spring from visionless leadership. LDA is essentially ruled by deputationists who naturally hold short term projects and reforms dearer than structural ones. Still things are getting better but for employees welfare & benefits, i dont see any positive intent from the management. You will have to manage accomodation and transport from the salary that you get, there are no fringe benefits (unless ur from an influential family and have powerful contacts in bureaucracy or ruling party)

    moreover, you will have to toil hard to get the earned leaves approved when you want them. (forget the earned leaves) .same goes for the medical facility that youre entitled to. (forget the medical facility).

    Lack of behavioral training is apparant in how the superiors interact with us and vice versa. Organization is not even statutorily bound to train its employees properly so that they can be made aware of rules & regulations that govern the work process. the whole organization is standing on informal word of mouth sort of training given by seniors to juniors in order to make em useful. other things you have to pick up yourself while working here, the seniors wouldnt be very supportive because the work pressure is usually immense and they cant help u out at the cost of their worK.

    Advice to Management

    Reorient yourself. Employees arent expendable, they are assets too.

    Organization is good.
    Good envoronment

    but employees need to be tretaed by some good psychologist and religious scholor so that they may learn whats HARAM and whats HALAL.

    Advice to Management

    Make a gym for youth at the top of the building
    This Organization has made many billionaires, increase salaries of employees
    There should be bayans of Molanas there frequently.

    Pros

    I joined LDA in 1982 when it was a good employer.I am satisfied from my job though the management has changed its mood towards its senior employees only because a lot of junior officers have been posted on top seats.They are too junior to respect senior officers.

    Cons

    keep striving to get the things right

    Advice to Management

    pl do not ignore merit.
