Productive and fun work place
Intern (Former Employee) –  Delhi, DelhiAugust 17, 2019
I was intern there and I had so much fun working with scientists and learnt a lot from them since they have so much knowledge and still they are eager to learn new things and experimenting their knowledge.
Mentor will help you and call you every day if the mentor really want to teach you and give you something.
If mentor is not good and not have time then they will call you once in week n then you will not learn anything from them n that is like you just bought your project from there.

If mentor is not right n not gives time then try to change mentor otherwise everything is good
but there you have to explore and research as much as you can for better result and learning project.
Pros
Fun work life
Cons
They don't have enough time to give to intern .

Long Term Job
Scientist (Former Employee) –  Chennai, Tamil NaduJanuary 14, 2019
Secured Job.

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.)
Pros
Long term secured Job
Cons
No Supporting System. Projects can get de-railed.
