nothing much. only one : one can prepare for other companies or exams like IES/GRE, sitting in office without much disturbance, given that he can act like a sycophant towards the higher ranked people and teach them things (about technical subjects, software, fixed deposit schemes, flat prices in Mumbai area) whatever they ask for. (mostly applicable to RIC division of the company)
you are paid for acting like a private teacher who teach people higher in rank, about technical things, software and listen/answer to their foolish doubts whenever they ask, only to be humiliated afterwards by the same person during appraisal stating "you should improve your English, subject knowledge". Seniors expect you to educate them and they will try to get the attention of their seniors, by saying the same thing that you taught them, only a bit loudly (showing confidence) as if they themselves cracked the puzzle! No career development, namesake training by internal people most of whom didn't have much experience, full politics. When an employee joins he will be educated about values and hardwork which the preacher himself don't follow. Generally an employee starts to work harder initially to make a impression, to improve/better the company's overall image, only to discover in the end that his efforts don't get appreciated as his reporting officer got all the credit for the job.
the job itself is not difficult compared to enduring the mischiefs of seniors.
IRS Policy is very good, got a opportunity to serve with reputed clients like ONGC,IOCL,BPCL,HPCL Etc. IRS Has a experienced personal with various areas, so have a more chance to enhance myself skills on different fields. Has a scope to work in different fields , inspection of critical equipment's etc.
They have not absorbed me as a permanent employer after giving a long time services in 5 years.
I do inspection on regular basis with different clients , it has a great expose to accustom with reputed clients. Work-life is balance.
There is HR only on Paper as and when you share your problems, HR Says it not there responsibility. Work pressure is high and there is compensation for our work even if we work more then 12 to 14 hours a day.Appresal is only name sake.
Work is slightly challenging as we need to be updated for every Engineering product.
