    I worked at Tata Steel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Chilled life, work life balance, supporting and facilitating culture, company is having innovative approach to introduce new things to indian mmarket kudos to marketing team for that. Good ethics standards, a gr8 place for women to work. Visionary MD.

    Cons

    Spends too much on other things rather than caring own employee, doesn't have any plan for career progression life stucks in ns 7 and il4 level, needs good connections afterwards rather than knowledge and experience. Low salary standards to current industry trends (considering an MT from an elite college)
    pay structure highly varies from layer to layer of management (first 2 are of different league, 3rd one is different and rest 3 will be getting hope and peanuts.)
    company is in declining phase, cigar era is over yet top management is not able to recognize it and they are over confident about the company.
    Expectations from tata steel is something different and company behaving is different manner. Had one bad experience of arrogance of on boarding team while joining, many of the people are having superiority complex.
    Having all kind of policies and rules which sometimes prevents innovation within.

    Advice to Management

    Think something about career progression of people thats the reason why fresh passout joinees fade away.
    Pls pay according to salary standards. It should not be like that that different rule for top mgmt and different rules fore middle and line management.
    And also target the superiority complex of sr.mgmt they thinks that "this is tata steel, no matter what the market conditions will be, we will survive" pls say that to survive we need to fight, losing mines will be a curse one day.

    I have been working at Tata Steel (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good if you want a continue with a stable in the nest . comfortable since you are with the flow and keep doing routine jobs

    Cons

    Growth is very slow, Performance and feed back will be biased & always based on a pseudo status quo an more perception plays in it, years of experience has much value here , creativity will not be honed if it pinches the on-going system

    Advice to Management

    With all respects to the leaders of the team and their Vision , Only advice is to be practical when it comes to creativity and empowering young mass , see for potential highly percepted threats that don't let young mass to explore their potential due to a pseudo status quo and positional values but more than 80 percent of leader are actually best, creative programs wont help a creative environment would help , lastly let people work for they domain at which they can give their best or great futuristic minds are leaving us.
