    Good experience in power engineering.

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsGet to know lot of standards and good engineering practice. Access to all type of standards and experts in the company. All previous projects lessons are well documented to avoid the same mistakes in next projects.

    ConsSome time we may required to work in long hours during initial stage of projects and discussing with USA office for projects related meetings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProjects meeting should be planned in early hours of USA and possible ask USA engineers to come early to attend the meetings. Salary has to be reviewed frequently considering market value and this will help management to avoid negations with employee after he resigns from job.

    great place to work if you network

    Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Prosgood 2nd innings, they don't give anything until you resign and come back in a year or so.

    Consperformance is over hyped and in reality under rated. stay away from power projects, unless you like to be a daily labour paid 8 hours for 12 hours of daily work. yes they have overtime but it's non existent in reality. the supervisors say, no budget baby, and threaten covertly. that's ethics 101 here. top management sings a different song altogether. US guys don't care and local are only to glad, they just blame people productivity for not giving overtime! they hired all useless dimwits , if you believe them. non the less. french queen rule! no bread -then buy pastries.

    Advice to Senior Management...no use.
