Very bad working environment

Most of the time in the office you can only hear shoutings. Literally no one is happy with the job here and are willing to leave the company at the first opportunity given. The employees at the field level are the most hard hit, even though the situation at the management level is no different. The management is not at all employee friendly.




Bad work culture

Horrible Work Culture and Job Security

Company can easily grab top position in worst companies to work for. If a person is bored of peace and stability in his life, he or she can join this firm to get stress and tension. As I said, all worst qualities of a company are present here. No work life balance, no guidance or training, no job security, meetings most of the time, mandatory lay offs of at least 10 percent executives each year and many more. The top management is mostly ruthless, especially the HR head of the company. They care only about cost of production and production. Employees are liability and over emphasis is laid on how much amount company is spending on manpower cost. The company has consistently made profits(yes profits and not turnover) to the tune of 10000 crores each year, because there is no competition in Zinc production in India. Yet, 10% of executives are laid off each year, because manpower cost need to be reduced each year and new joinees take less salary than experienced one. However even GETs and lateral joinees have been asked to resign within a year of joining! It is a typical baniya company with worst culture and management. Even the CSR activities are carried with intention that no nearby community or villagers create problem with the production of the company. Although most if agricultural lands has been rendered useless by the polluted water of their several units in Dariba, Chanderiya and Debari. all in Rajasthan.There is no clarity of job to anybody. Even superiors would ask only for output without caring a least about how to achieve or policy framework. At the end of the day, -

Compensation is good but there is no work life balance

HZL provides a good compensation and benefits but work life balance is quite poor. For mining operation executives, there is lot of physical hardwork in underground mines.Also,there is no job rotation in the work.

Salary is good but poor work life balance

The company is good but not good for females. No work life balance. Females are generally not given benefits and attrition is very high.The appraisal system is very very poor. No transparency.

Learning Organisation - Worklife Balace Hard to Create

work culture is of government type... tough to complete task with the old employees. they have there typical system to do any work and are not ready for any change... remuneration is OK compared to industry standards in functional areas but not good on average as compared to industry growth It is very hard to create work life balance as most of the locations are remote areas In nutshell Company is good for Beginners but not long to work if you have better opportunities to do


Production Incentive, Pps, Accomdation Facility, Conveyance Facility, Fringe Benefits


Not as per Qualification, Threatening Managers, Long Working Unproductive hours, Disorted Heirarchy of Communication, Ignoring talent to be utilised, lack of growing opportunities, poor standards for reviewing employees stability n work

Productive and result oriented workplace

HZL is one of the best workplaces in India. Working culture is very good. Excellent focus on safety of all employees. But salary structure is slightly low, if you are coming in HZL by switching other company than it will give you a sufficient salary structure.

New Challenges

In a very short notice you have to plan different types of activities and their executions. the workplace culture between the operation people is very appreciable. The most hardest part of the job is short time period for a particular job and the poor office infrastructure. the most enjoyable part is new challenges.
