The process was good but the manager lacked in handling the team as a fresher you get many things to learn and opportunity to explore. The company lacks in IT service operations due to 2 or 3 poor skilled leads and Manager

A nice place to work provided your coworkers are good. The work environment is good and there is good job security. But hardly any other employee bonding exercises or provisions.

Nice place to work and learn about cutting tools. But it is best to join as permanent employee. As graduate trainee, it's very difficult to be taken as permanent employee, management behave like they own the company.

Kennametal India Ltd is an MNC known for its excellent operational ethics and innovation driven work culture. Special Purpose Machine Building business rests on its import substitution concept serving Automobile/ Defense / General Engineering sectors. It is unbelievable that management could think of "Make in India" , 100% outsourcing and constant innovation in the distant past (1985) when foreign collaboration for any product was the norm. Of course hardest part of the job was long working hours but it was also the most enjoyable experience as one gained immense knowledge of machine building never possible anywhere else in India
Pros
Very high job satisfaction / great lunch and breakfast / great salary package
Cons
One tends to stay till retirement
