    Pros

    Good team working environment and options to promot to a higher level by virtue of talent and capacity of employees. Moreover, there is a good working environment and company institutional calture.

    Cons

    All the working environment was great; but my position was contract/ term position/ and i had to stop at the end of the contract. On the other hand, since the company acquired and other similar company, it had to accommodate the engineers from the new company where i had to wait until all of them are positioned.

    Advice to Management

    Open discussion between employees and management is constructive both sides as it motivates the employee and may also get the employees better contribution to be implemented in the company's current working methodology which could be efficient once in a while.
