    Pros

    Good salary is the only thing that I can last when it comes to pros.

    Cons

    No fixed working hours. We usually work for 12 hours a day and 6 days a week and are still expected to work on Sundays. Your role is never really defined properly. HR department is horrible and they don't give you complete information before you join. There is no proper accommodation or transportation facility. This company has very employee unfriendly policies. I would not recommend working here at all.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management needs to realize that their employees are not machines and needs to change their complete approach and become more professional.

    I worked at Vedanta Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vedanta is one of the largest Non-Ferrous and Iron Ore Mining player and have established industry best practices. It is a great place to learn about plant operations, supply chain management, sales and marketing.

    Compensation and benefits are at par with the industry leaders.

    Cons

    There is too much group-ism and favouritism at middle and senior level.

    Agency Problem at this level is clear and unwanted.

    Also, there is an unwritten management philosophy to hire fresh GETs to replace employees around 4-5 years old.

    Advice to Management

    All those women empowerment campaigns and marketing events are not sustainable. Invest and retain your local employees and GETs. Merit and not favouritism is the answer for sustainable growth.
