Scientist (Former Employee) – Chennai, Tamil Nadu – January 14, 2019
Unlike other Government Companies, you can have more freedom in working. You get to choose projects and work on path breaking projects.
Sadly, at the end of the day it is still a government company. While freedom is given to explore, do projects the same freedom is used by others - colleagues, supporting folks (technicians, manufacturing team etc.)
