    Pros

    Good work Culture, Pay is good for a beginner. You can enjoy your first few years if you are a graduate trainee.

    Cons

    No growth aspects, Promotion depends on boot-licking skills and no learnings from the job if you are in an engineering role.

    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.

    I have been working at Tata Steel full-time

    Pros

    Tata Steel makes business excellence a priority through its in-house training programs and annual employee reviews that push for employee development. There are opportunities for advancement for those who excel at their positions or exhibit the ability to take added responsibilities.

    Cons

    The company likes to run lean whenever possible, so employees that don't stand out in their abilities or performance are vulnerable to cost-cutting initiatives.

    Pros

    They seemed to be in a hurry to just hire up anyone ASAP. They did not consider proper conduct or validity of points in the Group discussion.

    Cons

    Did not even read the form they asked us to fill. Completely technical interview yet such steep shortlisting from meager Group discussion: 24 to 4!

    Advice to Management

    and took just one from the entire institute! not fair if u come on the first day!
