    I worked at Vedanta Resources full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This company was earlier majorly owned by Mitsui & Co, Japan and later acquired by Vedanta. Has its own mineral resources in Goa, Karnataka and East Africa. Listed company. The Company is based in Goa which is a heaven to work and live.

    Cons

    This is a Single product company though subsidiary company also owns a pig iron plant also in Goa. Heavy dependence on steel industry. The company is putting in best efforts for conservation of environment but pollution hazards will continue to haunt them due to nature of the product (Iron ore).

    Advice to Management

    Diversify into other businesses to benefit locals in Goa who have lost quite a few jobs in the last 3~4 years due to mining restrictions. CSR activities of the company are commendable. What people need are jobs.
