    Pros

    Good work life balance, Great perks, free health care for self and dependents, Employee centric policies

    Cons

    Time gap between promotions is more, change in profile is difficult, lot of red tape in the system (but is decreasing fast by use of computerised systems)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow transfers as per interests and job rotation. Promotions should be merit based and at lower time intervals.

    Former Employee - General Manager in Ahmedabad
    Former Employee - General Manager in Ahmedabad

    I worked at ONGC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a 'Company that Cares'. Very good financial package which includes monthly bonus and perks , share in profits-annually, easy loan facilities for purchase of Car, furniture. laptop, House etc. Excellent medical facilities for self and dependent family members. Medical facilities continue even after retirement for self and spouse. Promotions are time bound at junior levels and for higher positions merit becomes most important criteria. One can expect to reach DGM level in his entire career at least. Good training opportunities and skill development facilities. Free hand is given to perform and show results. Transfers can be expected once in 7 years on an average.

    Cons

    If posted at Research Institute then work-life balance is very good otherwise very tough working conditions if posted in oil fields duties or operational areas/plants. Duty hours can be as high as 65 hours per week in operational areas and tiring too. Decision making on proposals for productivity and efficiency improvement etc submitted to Management are very time consuming and also implementation is very slow and not time bound manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve time bound decision making, fast track implementation of approved projects or schemes. Improve office and operational infrastructure since it is quite aging and impacts efficiency and productivity.
