    I worked at Power Grid Corporation of India full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company provides a very congineal atmosphere to work in all spheres of Power Transmission and grid management. If you desire to work for your own satisfaction, then Powergrid is one of the best organizations to work with.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    I was not promoted for about 12 years, despite the fact that I was considered one of the best executive in the region. I was assigned difficult jobs which others were unable to do. My advice to management is to kindly don't harass your executives like this.
