Secure Job with time for family

I am in 12 hours shift duty (post Covid-19), normal shift duty pattern was 8 hours, six days working plus two days off. Normally ONGC has rigid mindset work culture & management. Change in role and responsibilities is not as per experience rather it is random or through someone sitting at 3-4 post higher. Working culture is bureaucratic & old fashioned. Prolonged alone shift duties kills group learning & puts one in lagging position when it comes to project management & planning, commissioning, major troubleshooting, vendor communication.Good things are that it is a secure job, with one's own perspective of peace of mind. Easy going attitude. Pan India employee profile. Highest profitable Indian PSU in energy sector with very good repute.

A huge organisation for india's energy needs and for its mission to achieve self sufficiency

Ongc is indias foremost exploration and production company. It has involvement in a diverse portfolio of activities associated with the oil and gas sector be in e&p, drilling, logging etc. Life in this organisation cannot be described as a single line summary because such a diverse portfolio of activities spread all over the country leads to a wide variety of work-life cultures. If the corporate offices have a typical 9 to 4 pattern, the fields have round the clock operations with 2 or even 3 shifts of manpower.The fields are spread in remotest possible locations and offshore deep into the sea. Such locations offer a unique challenge of living and working in a never seen environment. Most get accustomed but a few have a tough time getting used to the conditions and work timings.Overall it is a good organisation which offers a variety of experiences and a nice learning curve for ones career growth.


Many perks, Decent salaries


Flawed job rotation policy, Stressful work environment in fields

Knowledge enriching

My experience with Oil and Natural Gas Corp India was very enriching knowledge wise. I learnt about the science and technology behind the exploration and production of crude oil. Being the premier National Oil Company, the culture was formal, hierarchal and autocratic. The Management always cared about the employees and the company had many benefits in place for their employees like paid leaves, sick leaves and health benefits. The most enjoyable part was the learnings through the informal knowledge sharing discussions and trainings. Despite of its culture, the managers at operational levels had the autonomy to take timely decisions if required. The hardest part was the stay on the offshore rigs, and extensive transfer across the country.


Paid leaves, health care

Best work-life balance with extra employee benefits

You can have the best work-life balance while working at ONGC and the company has the best employee benefits schemes in the entire country. The working culture and senior management is a bit of an issue though.

Work schedule is 12 hours per day, the work environment is very competitive and exhausting, but you get paid for what you are working for, you enjoy a very balanced life by spending good amount of days at home.
