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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
