    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.

  6. Perfect Indian MNC to launch your career in Construction Industry.
