    Pros

    You can learn lessons in hard work, patience, working in extreme conditions etc. Civil engineers have good future in L&T Construction.

    Cons

    No recognition to talent. Senior management will keep on abusing junior employees, especially GETs. Long working hours. No clear direction about future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kind towards entry level employees. Motivate employees with encouragement. discuss team's progress and day to day activities with team members. Stop blaming your failures on juniors

    Pros

    Here, you will find an entrepreneurial environment, where you are given certain authorities to take decisions. As far as learning is concerned, well yes, you do get to learn.

    Cons

    The company, and thus the employees have limited growth. At a certain point, you WILL GET SATURATED. Make sure you leave within 2 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human Resources is not a game and employees are not sheep. Please make sure that correct people are assigned to the correct department. Random deployment is whats pushing the company down.

    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job in L&T is partly like a government job. There is minimum job pressure. its a family atmosphere and very high job security. There is preference for performing employees within the organization when it comes to promotions.

    Cons

    Well its not challenging at all. You get comfortable with the company very fast. Your promotion largely depends on your immediate superior and the relationship with him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you recruit GETs, please consider them as engineers and assign them to different units after testing the suitability and their skill set. Otherwise you will end up placing good designers in sales job and good marketers in factory. They will leave you soon causing loss to you and them.

    Pros

    Lot to learn in one place. Their are no restriction on what you can see & what you cannot. As a engineer complete freedom is given to you. If one can spend at least first 5 to 6 yrs in company, lot of higher roles and responsibilities can be given.

    Cons

    No specific work timings on site (Mostly more than 12 hrs daily), Sometimes unnecessary extra pressure, Working culture depends mostly on how your boss is, unbalance work & personal life. No time for looking what is going outside L&T

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time has come to change a strategy by creating a favorable conditions for talented , young & dynamic engineers who wish to stay long with the company but does not due to above listed issues.
