    Pros

    Solid company who really takes care of its employees; good package, easy to grow if you constantly work hard and proves your 100% commitment

    Cons

    Started 2-3 years ago, a lot of reorganizations happened and people is confused and company lost some of key peoples without having an explanation; for sure a lot of mistakes were done but I think is the normal way to learn; Overall, I think, the company will be strengthen in short time; similar, for all big corporations, the “network” acquaintances are often used to influence careers and weak people ends up as senior managers.

    Advice to Management

    You lost people's confidence and if you continue to experiment without a clear strategy could end badly;
