    Pros

    Nice place to start your career.

    Cons

    You will have to leave in order to move on. Too many politics and few opportunity to be promoted.

    Pros

    For starters the salary is better than most of the Spanish companies and your job is very stable. The company works with the newest technologies so get know all the new products.

    Cons

    Most of the employees have been working in the company for more than 10 years, their salaries are very high and they have become lazy because they feel than the company won't fire them. New employees find difficult to start in the company because they don't find any help from their more experiences colleagues

    Advice to Management

    Put more pressure on the more experienced employees and make sure that new employees have a proper introduction in the company.

    Pros

    smart people, smart ideas and customer service is KING

    Cons

    leadership is old school - still going through transition - great words but what hits the troops is inconsistent. All communication through Powerpoint !

    Advice to Management

    deliver fewer things well, connect more to your audience - your employees are your customers - communication with them, not at them

    Pros

    As a contractor, I felt like part of the team. Company went well beyond normal support allowing work from home. No training required. Company values employee engagement first.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have stayed and worked on other projects.

    Advice to Management

    Set career paths and development plans. Most people seemed to stay exactly where they were three years after I joined. There are allot of yes men.
