  • Supportive environment
  • Sense of belonging
  • Ability to meet personal goals

Fast growing Maharatna PSU Company. Cares for welfare of its employees and their family.

I have been fortunate to be a part of this Company for as long as 44 years. Now as a retired ex-employee, I can say that being in and out of the Company is a life time experience. If one gets an opportunity to join Coal India, he/she must avail this opportunity.


All good features of an organization, one would like to be a part of.


Some times, non-performers also get the same benefits as the performers, no extra recognition for outstanding performers

Monotonous Work culture

Repeated work every now and then. Long working hours with huge hierarchical culture worsen the working condition of employee. Less of niche initiative.

Supportive work environment and Job security

Coal India Limited is a Public Sector undertaking under GOI due to which it provides a job security and good benefits in terms of allowances and compensations. The work environment is good with cooperative culture and it feels like a family. It provides a work life balance. However there are certain cons like its a male dominated sector therefore at certain points females face a discrimination at higher positions specially when they are not ready to take orders from a female officer. Limited future growth as people are lethargic to learn new things and new technology.

bad work environment, bad work culture, remote postings

if you are in electrical/mechanical/mining you will have to work 24x7 , deal with local thugs everything you learned during your graduation will be useless once you join here


job security, you can take an year off (for preparation etc) and join back


remote and dusty locations, deal with uneducated people

Rough and tough yet pleasure

Excellent in terms of people and support, good remuneration and benefits, dignity of the organisation yet needs human resource approach in career recognition for performers.

Very much amazing

Coal India Ltd is one of the biggest Public Sector Undertaking Company in India. It provides nearly Three Lakhs of direct employment and another Twenty Lakhs of indirect employment. It is the most cash reach company in India and provides excellent benefit to its employees. 80% of employees are working in the Underground and dealt with many hazardous problems.


Profit rating pay and Bonus

Productive yet old school of Management

It's a good place to work, but one needs to be more of a pseudo than an intellect. Like any other Govt organisation an affluent background does wonders. YES MAN is more preferred than an independent problem solver. Flattery is the order of the day right from the Top Management Board to the Lowest rung of Managers. Not a very good place for Independent Problem Solver. Or in other words, Flattery is preferred over independent Intellectuals. Yes mans gets promoted over the actual Independent thinkers. A word of command is the order however it may be contrary to the fact.

Productive and encouraging

The organization is basically labour intensive and hence as a HR Manager the job is always to maintain harmonious relations which is a difficult task as the manpower is very large and no HRIS/ERP is developed at hand to get the data/reports instantly.
