Just another government sector.

Its a huge and good campus, but not very interactive employees. They work like robots and get paid very less. The lunch time lasts for 3 hours, and at its worst its a political nightmare.

Pros

Cheap lunches

Cons

Unprofessional environment

Only for people who want to do phd

Hello, i have 3 years of experience in DRDO and i would like to say that working enviroment is very bad there , if you r joining as research scholar they will exploit you, and also the senior scientist will take credit whatever work you will do. I will not recommend drdo to anyone.

Pros

Cons

no credit for work, exploitation, rules rules and rules

Very relaxing job especially when you are a scientist and handsome pay too.

A typical day starts around 0840 hrs IST and ends around 1700 hrs IST. There are tea breaks and lunch breaks in between as well. Full independence of parallel working on multiple projects. Its a temple for Aero Engineers, you get to work what u have learnt. Other than the Basic pay you also enjoy the The hardest part of the job is for researchers who get less pay as compared to scientists and officers.

Pros

Wet and Dry canteen facilities. abundant holidays

Great Work environment

Pros * DRDO is a great place to work if interested in doing Research. * Funding will not be a problem if you have a great idea and able to justify its benefits for our country. * Compensation is also good with respect to the type of work. Cons * Sometimes working hour could be hectic as you have to work for 12-16 hours. * Promotion is time-based, so even after doing great work you will have to wait to get promotion.
