    I have been working at Valeo full-time

    Pros

    A school where you can learn a lot. Has a sound culture. Health Insurance is really satisfying, you receive some benefits every 3 months at around a range of 400 liras depending on the improvement targets. They have a doctor for one shift. They provide shuttles and free food at lunch plus you could also dine after 6 pm before you leave the work if you do not use shuttles.

    Cons

    Upper management could have been better, there is no transparency in the escalation process, lobby is the key rather than your talents. A professional company with less professional employees.
