      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1. It is a public sector undertaking, so job is highly secure 2. It pays well for freshers 3. Good for people interested in chemical engineering - core sector 4. Health benefits are good for self and dependents 5. You can get away with mediocre performance

      Cons

      1. Transferable job with higher chances of non-city/ remote location posting 2. Management is slow in decision making 3. For departments other than chemical engineering, the job in refinery is not engineering related, mostly managerial. 4. Production and electrical operations departments - first 10-12 years will be shift job, which will affect body cycle 5. Mostly manpower is limited, you will have to do double shifts 6. Income growth is slower as you become senior
