    Pros

    You will learn a lot since there are not good specialization and people has to be multitask. People at all levels and in the vast majority of the countries are nice and are willing to help each other.
    Salaries are benefits are good.

    Cons

    A lot of politics within the company. To be considered for a promotion you should be part of a management group and compromise in absolute loyalty. Frequently bad practices are hidden for management and lose a lot of time trying to find out who to blame to.
    There are no planning. I oftenly worked on plans that never saw reality, without considering that in 3 years I had 5 managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are dinosaurs.

    Company has multiple solutions, opportunities, etc to advance skills, delivery quality products that matter. The employees are task driven with customer services at the heart of each decision made.

    Cons

    Management needs to refocus on investing in quality current employees
    The concept of outsourcing everything and do more with less is hurting ability to scale, product delivery, and quality

    A lot people have worked for the company for most of their career. Internal candidates get preference

    HR not responsive. No real "on-boarding" of new employees. Too much pointing the finger at others, rather than becoming engaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan, direct, motivate and inspire.
