Vedanta Resources follows double standards among their own manpower, let it be at any Project & at any part of our Country. No doubt, this is one of the fastest growing Co. but, discriminate among Sr. & experienced Employees, Engineers & Supervisors. More & more responsibilities are thrown/burdened on B.Sc & B.Com Trainees. In order to get rid of workmen liabilities, as mentioned under the statutory obligations, they appoint workmen & designate them as Supervisors to exploit them. Almost entire work of any Project/Factory is out sourced to the Contractors & Vedanta simply controls with their parameters as fixed in their annual targets. In order to extract the maximum from any plant, they run it round the clock, without preventive/ routine maintenance. As a result major technical failure takes place. Cost cutting could be seen every where, even while the plant is under maintenance even on SOS basis. Frequently, consistence cost cutting & in order to achieve targets, plants/factories are put on high risk.

Dislikes

Discriminating salary structure. This Co. has a MINDSET that the old & experienced employees of any PSUs are not worth. So, all such employees are poorly paid. Performance Appraisal system is not transparent. They have a system of Star Performers, but they are not reviewed as per performance. Monthly Statutory Compliance reports submitted by respective Departments are sometimes, not based on actual facts, it is simply an eyewash. After dis-investment of any PSUs, new executives were appointed by the Co. & some of them were found engaged in big frauds. Co. simply removed them without recovery. Had there not be MAS (Management Assurance System at HO Mumbai) which, every employee has access, the frequency of such cases would have been much more. Discrimination among old PSU employees & new employees, appointed after dis-investment, could be seen every where, viz. house allotment, medical services, reimbursement of medical bills, Performance Appraisal System, CEO Kitty etc. This Co. is a hub of attractive buildings, parks, Hospitals, Infra-structure, Canteens, clean roads but has a poor work culture. Frustration among employees could be seen every where. Man, Machine & Material are important in any industry. My personal observation, Frustration is gradually increasing among Human beings (viz. Employees due to discrimination).

Work

Discriminating Environment could be seen every where.

My experience at VEDANTA Resources was mixed with pros and cons , as a beginner you will get good experience but it depends on The unit you are posted some units are very good as Cairn India , Hindustan Zinc, Balco while units like sesa Goa are average you will get good salaries of you are posted in profit making units like hzl,Cairn while you will not get these types of facilities in loss making units like sesa Goa , Hr facilities are not that much good as compared to other industries like Tata and Reliance, Carrier growth is limited, Your qualification will be valued if your boss is having a good degree and knowledge while the units like sesa Goa have only diploma holders and they don't respect graduates from good colleges from India. So it depends on location where you are posted

-Money is ok. Average. Higher management gets very high package. But lower management are on average scale
-Company follows all standards
-safety is given priority here

Dislikes

-career growth is not there
-work culture is like hell. Every day u have to fight a war
-Middle managements are duffers. Do not have the experience which there sub-ordinate has but sits as ur boss.
-How much work u do, no boss gonna appreciate. At the end of day u ll be criticized for what u have not done yet.
- Manager give too much work. But dont think how will the person do. And u end up being criticized.
-Safety is good. But due to stringent safety rules, unnecessary hectic comes the way.
-You may be given works which you dont owns. Sometimes you have to look for work of other department/stream people. eg; mechanical looking after civil jobs.
-The bloody bells curve that control your appraisal, manager always try to show your weakness rather strength.
-You are not rewarded as you deserve.
-other company does not recruits you as u are vedanta people, as ur work culture is not good.

In vedanta senior managements are so flexible so I am exciting to work as like as my home. Here all employees arefriendly so it is a family.

Dislikes

We are working together in the shop floor that's why we can produced more production and our co- operation is stron g. I am very happy to work in vedanta limited. Hundred percent obviously secured. In vedanta career growth is much better. Our salary is now ok but it needs to be high because I have 9 years experience in this plant. Here every one is getting chance for new training session as per schedule.

Work

In Vedanta , every one has potential for rotating job,
Every one having good exposure in every single operation activity of core fields. A weak point here no such growth /promotion to BSc M9grade even though they work hard as well know all key skill of operation compare to engineers.company prefer to promote engineer only.
About work life balance its good and I thinks more improvement required in remote locations.
Salary and parks good enough. Mentor Mentee activity is perfect
So much learning that way I wish to rejoin my first company.

Dislikes

Appraisal system and career growths for shop floor employees must be review.

This company expects the fist class engineering graduates to work like a labor for money and this is the ground reality. Everything is over hyped outside and the reality is completely different and the same is applicable for the lower level to the top most management level as well.
As an engineer, your expectations will really hurts.

Dislikes

Company is going for a massive outsourcing, so there is no job security at all. It has already asked for tenders for entire operation & maintenance of the premises. As a fresher there is no growth. No balanced work profile, extreme working conditions.

Work

No value addition.
Like the Chinese technology, the company also treats you like Chinese labor!

Its a good company to gain work experience. At senior position like any other company one has to be tactful . On the whole a company worth working like my other previous companies. Nothing more nothing less. As one has to work as per organizations policies and goals.

Dislikes

Work culture is good. And its always exciting to take challenges.

Teammates will use all tactics to be on less danger side of bell curve as well as do any thing to go on sweet side. this will make some one to be victim as per company policy. huge politics

Dislikes

appraisal will be good for bosses near dear one and who can do fake formalities to boast as hero

Work

work is totaly distracted , when you concentrate on one thing other will come and ask you do different things, more bosses then employees , so order not comes in line, totally end up with nothing completed

they will make you supervisor from a engineer

A very good place to work, seniors are very supportive even very nice learning experience.
There should be a system to grow contractual staffs on VEDANTAs payroll to settle their work life. I really experience a very good working culture but couldn't settle myself there because of being a contractual staff there.

Dislikes

Being contractual staffs even being much talented couldn't get Vedanta payroll just coz of company doesn't have the policy to take contractual staffs on Vedanta payroll.
