    The best professional and learning experience one could wish for.

    Strategic Planning Junior Advisor (Former Employee)
    Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico)

    ProsAmong the pros that I found during my tenure as Advisor are warm camaraderie amongst colleagues, rich and diverse cross-functional projects and a stellar array of the industry's top talents.

    ConsI found it particularly hard to make an international transfer although it was something to expect during a bad season for the industry.

    It's a great place to work

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

    ProsIt's a company that allows people to grow inside the company because it gives the oppotunity of making decissions at any level. I enjoyed my experience

    ConsSometimes the job can be vey hard because there are no times for anybody, what i mean is that i could have a labor day of 14 hours non stop.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should focuse a little bit more in the people's needs, so they don't get tired of the job, it should be more fun
