    Pros

    This is the kind of company that provides the technology and human resources to drive you thru your goals, nothing can be left on the side without achieved with success !!!

    Cons

    If you're not the kind of employee who can manage your duties and personal life apart, then , probably you should aim to a different company, this is something that you will learn in a glance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't leave the evaluation to the last minute, employees are waiting for the correct path and you're responsible for your team. success isn't achieved without a team in your back
