    I worked at Steel Authority of India full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot while being in this company. Though you may not be aware of, but you get to work on many management tools and concepts. I never had an idea that I used to work on waterfall projects unless I read it somewhere. And you learn many other tools apart from your engineering tools. Also the pay and other facilities are good.

    Cons

    You dont get too much growth to be honest. If you are hard working person and you just love to work and dont care about appreciation and other things, this is the place for you. you have a timeline for your promotions. before that you cannot get promoted.
