    Former Employee - Applications Engineer  in  Berlín (El Salvador)

    Pros

    Atotech, subsidiary of Total SA, offers relatively good perk compared to its competitors. Moreover, it is easy to maintain good work/life balance when you work in Headquarter. When you work in HQ, you don't receive much pressure from customers, makes you pretty detached from what's happening in the region.

    Cons

    Often management approach is very top down. Good communication skills and assertiveness are very necessary in order to survive in the environment. As engineer, you don't have much to say, even though you have a clear picture of what's happening in the real world/ customer site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Different people needs to be incentivized differently. I think management should steer away from top-down approach. Management should also recognize potential employee very early and further develop them with training/ education.
    Not all managers have good leadership skills. Further assessment on leadership skill of the top management is very important.
