    I have been working at Power Grid Corporation of India full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Only salary nothing else .

    Cons

    1 , no work life balance at sight level, they even call u for duty at the middle of the night. 2, worst higher management. GMs even have not capable and have not heard to the lover employees below manager. 3, your personal claim will be cutted by finance department, when ever they send u on a tour u will get half of ur expenses.

    Advice to Management

    1, there must be work life balance at sight level employees, other wise u will loose the best engineers. 2, finance department must be countable for cutting of personal claim, and there must be clarity about where the claim are being cutted. 3, high authority must talk to the sight level employees and must have clear view about sight level issue. 4, if over time done then management must give competition of it.
