Review for Cairn Energy

The company provided all round exposure for my crucial part of my career to learn and make more initiatives in my work. The company encouraged to explore new responsibilities with authority that helped me to deliver my results. Effectively managed the budgets for multiple oil & gas concessions and implemented many software applications. The company supported in all my responsibilities and gave proper guidance and independence to interact with my JV partners which gave me confidence and enrich my knowledge. This complemented my JV management skills.


shifting to North India from South was a personal disappointment.

Productive and employee focused organization

It was one of the best company who take care of their employees as well as their production process. I would like to appreciate the management who always be ready to face new challenges and provides best technology to their employee. I have used the PTS, VTS, PIDS, 360 Degree rotate cameras, face read attendance for the contract worker etc. I am the mead stream operator but I took proud to be a part of Cairn Energy India. We have many times celebrated 0% accident reports from safety officer. Safety officer take care for the all vehicles checking and track on speed. Cairn Energy India is fast growing company and have employee engagement activities, development activities, CSR activities for communities, governemt activities etc.

Cairn India Ltd is a good company to work with. Very good working environment with very good team which accomplished results in a short span.

Cairn India Ltd has a field at Barmer. Producing oil from the desert is a tough task. The most challenging task was to work with local community. Being an HR & Administration professional day to day had to interact with local community. Over the period of 20 years learnt every aspect of Administration and HR . It was a great challenge to commence production within a year of commencement of construction. Putting systems in place making local vendors understand the process is indeed a challenging task. Since the job is ON/OFF pattern cultural programs and theme dinners make the work place a fun place. This was most enjoyable part of the job as you see your co workers refreshing from monotonous job in the evenings away from their families. Being a person responsible for organizing such events it is more enjoyable. Good part in the organization is the management supports every activity that motivates employee. You have freedom to work. Nice company to work with.


Free accommodation, meals, log service awards foreign tours for families, diwali gift hampers.


Got to spend 21 days away from family, tough climactic conditions, flat organization advancement is scarce, working in remote locations, work life balance, oil field being small limited opportunities.
