The Organization has many women friendly activities and programs especially when its related to childcare etc.
The Organization has friendly work atmosphere and working hours are not long.
The pay structure is very good and lot of perks (quite unmatched by any MNC)
There is still dearth of Women in Key positions and Critical departments so you either have to be very headstrong or if you are working in support departments like Admin, HR, Legal and Finance you may find it easier to cope with. Women are far and few in Main business related departments.
The atmosphere in each office differs hugely depending on geographical location and work profile. Over all its a traditional sort of set up.
Indian Oil Corporation Limited is among the seven Maharatna companies of India. I had worked as a HR project assistant as a part of my MBA internship.
Indian Oil Corporation Limited offers the best compensation and allowances in the country.It is a very safe place for women to work and I did work for six months very happily. I did also got to learn many things and its a great place to work for both men and women. It does provide equal opportunity for both genders and will always be a great experience for working there.
The cons of working at IOCL is not concerned with the work place, its just concerned with the fact that the work might lead you to a saturation level, as the allowances are so beneficial, that you would never like to leave such a working place. I had interviewed many officers during my internship at IOCL and they said that the medical allowance provided was the best in the country.The other allowances was also at par with the best industry allowances of the country. The food provided at the canteen is subsidized and yet so healthy.
