This is a 'navaranta' central public sector enterprise.i like the working culture of this company as all seniors & the colleagues are so much hard working and supportive.Even during the fault time or in any critical issues the siniors like DGM & GM are aslo be in the site for guiding us and aslo doing there work more than thier duty time .

Dislikes

The only thing i dislike here is the job i am doing is a temporary Job(contractual job) which will be ended after completion of the project.

Work

Generally very few people (6 including incharge) are there with you for substation maintenance. PowerGrid regularly provides training at different places of india, sometimes foreign training are also provided.
Your job is secure, but it is transferable at any remote part of india.
Promotions are being done as per schedule if you are working good.
Salary and renumerations are best w.r.t other jobs for any electrical engr. If you have not qualified IES then it is the best job with respect to salary.

Dislikes

There is nothing like work life balance. You can be called for work any time. Even on Sunday or holiday you have to arrange someone on substation only then you can leave the substation premises.
You have to do work as per D. o.P and pre defined work procedure. Any new idea is welcome only on papers. It will not get implemented.

Its a great company being lead by great executives. It never felt like its a government owned firm. Feels like a highly ambitious and growing firm. Leaders are really identified and given oportunities to grow. HR processes are at par with international standards. People are nicely managed with utmost care and emotional intelligence.

Dislikes

The middle management is not as active
or experienced as top managment. It really seems to create a bottleneck in overall execution of highly ambitious aims of diversifying into new businesses and creating future leaders.

It's a work centric company with highly qualified professionals. Promotions and Appraisals are mostly on your work and being a large infrastructure company, it gives you exposure across spectrum. And most importantly the work brings actual impact and change in people life, thus a sense of true satisfaction. Salary and perks for any engineer is better or at par with any other core company.

Dislikes

Site postings may be at a remote location and at time work pressure and target might for project executions can be seriously high not at all what is generally expected in a PSU
