    I worked at ONGC

    Pros

    Good opportunity to see how people work in an Oil PSU, Life is cool here, if you want to learn you can always learn, and if not they are never gonna force you or something.

    Cons

    Projects not provided. You have to get around them to ask questions etc, else its like they dont know who you are.

    Great place to learn and gain experience in oil and gas drilling industry

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ONGC

    Pros

    1. Wide exposure in the field
    2. Good starting salary

    Cons

    1. Slow growth in hierarchy
    2. Salary increments slower compared to rest of the companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If hierarchical and monetary growth are faster, employees would be more satisfied but given ONGC is a PSU, making such a change would be difficult.
