    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.

    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.

    Pros

    This is a company with a wide range of sites and a wide variety of daily operating issues, making your working life a constant challenge and an opportunity for communicating with other people.

    Cons

    Some years ago a number of senior managers were brought in from outside the company and they set about replacing existing staff with their own people, placing personal loyalty above business capability.

    Advice to Management

    Look seriously at some of the new business ideas put forward by prospective buyers in 2016 and consider adopting some of them.
