    Pros

    Interesting and "first time in India" projects with unexpected roles, a lot of learning is expected. Accommodation is provided for almost nothing to all engineering working on site.

    Cons

    Though the work is good, the salary for an engineer at the entry-level is very low, even compared to the competitors.

    Advice to Management

    The training program at the entry-level is informative and useful. Though the salary should be increased if turnover has to be managed.

    Cons

    The company is not diverse. Cultural preferences are made when it comes to hiring. Multilingual and the inability to converse with even the most skilled.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is important. Larsen and Toubro has the ability to become a very strong international company. Diversifying will not only bring international talent and education, but will give a chance to expand and globalize to reach its pursuits.

    Pros

    Management more like family, understands personal problems. Rewards performance, appreciates hard work through awards and promotions.

    Cons

    The salary structure is poor. Competitors provide double and triple of what is offered by this company, which causes a high defection rate.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the package to fresh engineers. Oil and gas sector is gaining momentum in the middle east, so invest more in this section.

    Pros

    Work culture is good. Many perks & benefits apart from salary provided to site people. You get to learn the basics from the experts in the industry. Person's Knowledge & skills has good value & are compensated well.

    Cons

    There is far too much discrimination between site people & HQ/regional office people.

    Advice to Management

    Management must take care that site staff gets enough credit for the hard work , because ultimately site staff is responsible for delivering the requisite results in stipulated contractual time.
