    Pros

    Good social life, god flexi packages,

    Cons

    Who you smartly know, will take you "there", some managers overload a few and they cant step in, because the have no idea how the job is done, Newly engineers feel they deserve everything because they have made a master, now the wave of how many titles you have you are able to be part of the team. Some with military background think that at work is also the "my way or the high way"..... Because I am the boss, REALLY bad comunication between Based departments.

    Advice to Management

    Comunicate with each other rather than avoiding each other so you dont, get a even better appraisal rather than just get done with the "nonsense" paperwork give quality not quantity...

    Pros

    Most of the VPs are 'mat salleh' so you can expect fair & just treatment. No / less discrimination Nice working environment Good employment benefits

    Cons

    A lot of redtapes & bureaucracies that make the process too complicated & rigid to solve Road condition to get to Aker is very bad & dangerous
