    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Larsen & Toubro full-time

    Pros

    - Decent starting position and salary for a career
    - 12 paid time off days per year
    - 10 paid holidays
    - Laid back managers (good and bad)
    - Opportunities to receive monetary rewards for quality work

    Cons

    - Pay is not that great in comparison to other companies
    - Laid back managers do not confront employees who are slacking in work so these habits continue
    - Managers will try to keep you happy by making you false promises
    - Raises and performance reviews should, but don't, match up

    Advice to Management

    Please don't make promises that you won't keep just to keep people temporarily happy. It makes for a toxic and unpleasant work environment.
