    Pros

    LArsen and Toubro is a well managed company, It has a long track of being in different and varied fields. I am moderately satisfied with the overall management of the company.

    Cons

    Beware of sycophants, who would do anything to impress their manager. If working in the sun and in remote locations is not your thing, you might wish to reconsider.

    Advice to Management

    It could be more tech-savvy. Many departments have to be improved in this regard. HR's importance and their say in the matters should be given due importance.
