    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, good perks, good employee policies, not like govt, great leaders. I would recommend Tata Steel if you want to have a comfortable life with decent life style.

    Cons

    A bit slow paced, not for young energetic people, heavily polluted, Jamshedpur is Expensive, Not too much to do in Jamshedpur. The major cons are related to the location and safety. Jamshedpur is very polluted city you will not see starts in night ever.

    Pros

    For a Mining graduate, its a good place to start. However, you're better advised to look for better options after 2 years so as to progress your career.

    Cons

    The people here are really frustrated with the job, but that's how mining is.
