    Pros

    This company is no:1 in India and internationally also a recognized and growing there and we can learn so many new things and knowledge can improve up to date in modern technic methods in construction development.

    Cons

    office culture is ok, salary is less only if we will compare with other companies, but facilities is good and promotions wise if your work recognized and recommended you can get it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    self performance should recognize and recommend to the promotion not certain years to keep fixed, any complaint given above officer means it should be observe because it is relate to the company not to the person

    Pros

    Place to learn a lot. Good place to start your career as a structural engineer.
    Exposure and expert advise on various topics from a lot of brilliant engineers

    Cons

    Some locals to get into the company based on recommendations spoil reputation of company.
    No proper work ethics are exhibited.Sitting late to show efficiency is also encouraged as at the end of the day deliverables are somehow ready. People of the elite knowledge class are overshadowed by the show of the underperforming late sitters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not hire people based on recommendations. Please try to understand employees who work within time period are also efficient and asking for working on holidays shows that employees lack a work-life balance.

    Former Employee - Construction Manager in Bangalore
    Former Employee - Construction Manager in Bangalore

    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was highly enriching experience working at L&T. It ventures into untraveled road which compelled its employees think out of the box and come up with solutions never arrived before. L&T has been very careful about developing its employees by providing adequate training. A diligent employee can maintain a good work-life balance. Its never 'only work' at L&T. L&T is a great company to work for. Proud to be an former L&Tites.

    Cons

    Not much to say about this section. We are most bothered about maintaining work life balance. But I have never faced this trouble at L&T.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
