    I have been working at Tata Steel full-time (Less than a year)

    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!

    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work environement ok in very few teams like projects

    Cons

    lots of people unwilling to work or be progressive. Also all the 'ethical' is a load of hogwash and nothing seems to be followed in action though there are strong policies.


  3. "Not good for MBA graduate from good institute"

    Pros

    Nothing other than brand name of TATA , only a feel Good factor,

    Cons

    Huge difference between what is promised at campus ( in terms of CTC) & what you see at company,
    Blunders in a offer letter,
    Need strong "jack" to get justice
    Very limited scope to work in field of your interest, but if you have some " jack" then you will be on top priority, you will be placed in a best profile &........!
    Very much low in hand salary, huge amount of non-cash components which you can't use
    Join only if you know someone on a good position,

    Advice to Management

    Please try to be more transparent in terms of CTC , policies & justice

    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good range of kit to learn on

    Can't really think of anymore to write and it's a 20 word minimum

    Cons

    Management
    Salary
    Treated like dirt
    Not looked after at all
    Preach safety but never practice
    Preach a lot of good things but never deliver
    Lure you in with plans and progression but all they do is break your spirit

    Asbestos is everywhere and never dealt with in the correct way

    You'll go home with long term chest problems and health problems

    Lots of backhand deals going on

    Management are all idiots that got their jobs by flukes or because they know someone

    Advice to Management

    Complete management restructure

    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only pro would be the people you work with, not the ones you work for.

    Cons

    Management are under qualified. An average worker with half a brain might be your boss one day - beware! My boss was straight out of college with a Biology degree, what's that got to do with managing a steel plant?

    Advice to Management

    Instead of cutting back on overtime you should maybe stop middle management wasting their yearly budget on BMWs...

    Pros

    Great company to start if you are looking to stay for two years. Recognised world wide. So helps with Ms and mba applications

    Cons

    not that a good company for students belonging to IT background. Technologies are obsolete and management is strict on timings even if you don't work.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible working hours should be highly encouraged.

    I have been working at Tata Steel as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    HR processes in place. Good place to work and nurture your knowledge.
    Employees are ethical and loyal because of which the efficiency and productivity is in appropriate scale

    Cons

    The processes are so stringent that if people want to get with their own ideas they have to pass through all these processes.

    Pros

    Great past...which the company and employees take pride in

    Cons

    Cronyism is rampant...Senior Management considers themselves nothing less than God leaving you with very little freedom to act

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully with New MD at the helm of affairs, things will improve. But again have very little hope with the new man in the President Role will be able to motivate the people around him. Past MD was simply a poor example of putting an incompetent person on leadership position and on almost all values he falls way short..Hopefully the new MD will bring change as fresh whiff of air...
