    Cons

    office culture is ok, salary is less only if we will compare with other companies, but facilities is good and promotions wise if your work recognized and recommended you can get it

    self performance should recognize and recommend to the promotion not certain years to keep fixed, any complaint given above officer means it should be observe because it is relate to the company not to the person

    I worked at Larsen & Toubro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Place to learn a lot. Good place to start your career as a structural engineer.
    Exposure and expert advise on various topics from a lot of brilliant engineers

    Cons

    Some locals to get into the company based on recommendations spoil reputation of company.
    No proper work ethics are exhibited.Sitting late to show efficiency is also encouraged as at the end of the day deliverables are somehow ready. People of the elite knowledge class are overshadowed by the show of the underperforming late sitters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not hire people based on recommendations. Please try to understand employees who work within time period are also efficient and asking for working on holidays shows that employees lack a work-life balance.
