Excellent Salary benifits. Allowances as per govt rules. Full medical reimbursement for dependants and self. job locations all over India, you can explore places.
Extream working pressure and quantum of work is huge. Transfers all over India after 3-10 years. Company only cares about it's revenue and profit. HR policies are out dated. This company has business in essential services hence overtime is must but no compensation or allowance for overtime. No recognition even after sacrificing sleep and health to the company. Remote locations outside around 15-100km from main city. No guarantee of getting good location. Locations vary from Leh/Ladakh to Jaisalmer to NER, to Naksal areas. No guarantee of staying near metropolitan cities. No work life balance. only you, your colleagues and work. For children study issue if get transferred. family also suffers because of thier access to limited people. 10-15 people work at each substation. there may not be anyone from your age group. at some locations the working is like "Jeetu" from "Panchayat". Initial salary is high but not much growth down the line.1

1. Great paycheck (as compared to other Govt. sectors) 2. Amazing medical benefits to employees and dependents.
1. Pathetic work culture and office politics. 2. Zero work life balance.
