    Pros

    Don't get confused between being a street-smart person and a suck-up. The managers here are bad but if you are aggressive with your logic, they can be molded.
    Good work-life balance because of the fixed working hours

    Cons

    Vision lacking management and ever increasing internal redtape.

    Advice to Management

    Change!

    I worked at Thermax full-time

    Pros

    The training for the Graduate Engineers is a life-time experience. I got to learn more than what I just studied in the books. Practical learning is Amazing

    The tenure of site allocation for One Field Engineer or Commissioning Engineer is too high at times. Nonetheless, it is inevitable .

    I worked at Thermax full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good Exposure to products and Market
    2. Good Training programs

    I joined as Graduate Trainee and was assigned as Territory Manager later.

    Cons

    1. Lot of politics in the company. No healthy competition.
    2. Senior Management are not worried about the customers. They are just meant with Numbers, No matter if customer is crying for good service. They don't care at all.
    3. You get paid less and no adherence to work rules. In my 2 years tenure, I have seen lot of people doing task of 2 person, which they were not assigned.
    4. Lack of coordination among different departments. No department cares about other one, if the other one is loosing business due to the former department.
    5. Worst of all, Company and especially my Boss didn't care about my performance. If your performance is getting affected by other people bad decisions and careless behavior in the company, then you are rated less in annual performance review.
    6. Salary not to par as per Industry Standards.

    Advice to Management

    Get in Touch with people who are bottom of hierarchy to implement changes and improve work culture and business.
