    Rājahmundry

    ProsGood Package and medical benefits

    ConsVery poor management and HR policy.Worst Work culture,humiliation and ill-treatment by seniors,Engineers from IITs are given menial tasks like painting,chipping,greasing,cleaning etc..No job description for any designation,the food and facilities in drill sites are very poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease look into field engineers,esp drilling.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Explorationist

    Executive Level V (Former Employee)
    Mumbai

    ProsIt is the largest integrated oil& gas company with diversifications in upstream and downstream business.It is the most profitable company among all CPSE having Maharatna status.

    Working environment is good with friendly culture.Facilities,perks and salary highest among all CPSE,s.Medical facilities while in service as well after retirement are best in the country....better than that of civil services,other CPSE,s or even best multinational/desi companies.

    The company has opportunities for best career growth.All Director,s and CMD,s during last several years are from ranks only.There is a time scale promotion policy.There are ample opportunities in the company for Foreign Tours,Trips,Visits and Trainings abroad for technical persons and high ranking executives from any field.

    The company has also approved a defined contribution pension scheme for employees retiring after 1st Jan 2007.In this scheme pension of 50% of last basic pay drawn is guaranteed as pension,which is also a record for any CPSE,besides another pension under EPS-95 scheme.

    The company takes life long care for the employee and his spouse due to liberal monetary policies.

    ConsThe company does not need talented employees.Once in job even a mediocre employee and talented employee is considered at par.Most of the employees based on just loyality to bosses gets quick promotions and highest profit sharing bonus due to highest ACR ratings,while the meritorous candidates are neglected just for refusing to be yes man of bosses.The scycophant cultural is visible everywhere.Due to which many bright employees despite highest salaries and best perks quit the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement must learn to differentiate between employees loyal to the company and those having loyality towards their bosses only.The company is overstaffed at higher levels due to quicker indiscriminatory promotion policies due to which a large no. of senior level executives have no work and waste their time in unproductive activities.The work culture also needs to be improved.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
