    Pros

    Best in the contractor company category in India, this doesnt mean it doesnt need to improve. Read below for further.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Personal life becomes zero practically zero.

    No forum for employee work satisfaction index. All HR related surveys are fake.

    Advice to Management

    HR has to be strengthened as it is becoming a global company now. Attrition of good talent and accumulation of rotting talents in increasing, if no action is taken to curb this and if L&T keeps functioning the traditional way, its dream to be a large global company will be just a dream.
