Company with no working culture at all This company doesnt require engineers to work. It should take healthy ITI people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at ONGC full-time

Pros(false) job security-
This company doesnt require engineers to work. It should take healthy ITI people that can turn huge valves and take xerox/scan etc

ConsIf there was a survey on most mismanaged and companies with no working culture at all- ONGC would definitely top. There is no responsibility or accountability till E6-. Below that all are doing same job, different designations - and all doing same job. In offshore- all doing manual laborers job and in office- all typing letters and scanning and taking xerox copies.
a DGM- GM or even higher officer can be easily frightened with a simple police constable. I have seen a DGM loitering in feet of a policewalla.....No power- no respect-

Advice to Senior ManagementGive some share of power to ( if there is any) to lower cadre people like E2-E3 also. Dont treat them as peons or laborers. they are capable of doing much more and better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Corrupt, slow. vain, inefficient

Very Senior Level Officer In Contracts (Former Employee)
Mumbai

I worked at ONGC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsProvides better pay package and perks than any other PSU. Easy 5 days a week working.

ConsOut of Maha Navratnas, arguably the most corrupt. Glorifies in increasing profits without giving a look at dwindling reserves and lower productions of gas and oil year over year.Uses, very effectively the Vigilance department to harass honest and upright officers, aka Central government uses CBI. Diffused responsibility structure.Horde of senior officers with no juniors to work with. Slow, bureaucratic, megalomaniac.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey simply wont listen. Not to be blamed, difficult to break the system which is well established and has paid the individuals well in the past. Only solution is to privatize.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
