    Pros

    Very good compensation, you can gain a great experience that can help you in the future in another job, always looking for better and cheaper ways to do things, challenge you every time in every position or project.

    Cons

    Use to be a great place to work, recent changes in the top management of the company has turned the environment unstable, a lot of politics in top levels, employees are seen as expendables, the company is looking to downsize the positions in terms of salary and a large number of people has been fired, right now is a high risk and not profitable.

    Advice to Management

    The focus that the company use to have in people has change and employees are not longer willing to sacrifice their lives for nothing, this is a business for both company-employees, when you loose trust either ways there is no come back, it is a shame that such a great company is turning to the dark side

    Pros

    Lots of trainning, great offices, perks.

    Cons

    Bureocracy, could have more carreer opportunities within the company without moving personal so much between cities. Some Directors act as gods and do not accept any kind of questioning.

    Advice to Management

    Less Bureocracy, increase carreer opportunities and growth within the company

    High salary increase twice in a year between 25% to 35%. The top managment is open minded to new ideas

    Cons

    Even are open to new ideas Femsa is very conservative about implement new technology and hire people from another companies. The main source of tallent came from inside and offenlly people is noy ready or not have technical knowledge to play a suitable work

    Pros

    The business is growing byduplicating its value every 5 years

    Cons

    Not every the promotions are based upon the HR planning procedures. Some times the positions are covered as a last minute decision

    Advice to Management

    It would be great you to keep posted your top talent on their next steps and over the process where them would be not considered buy may play as a candidates

    Pros

    Great to learn, challenging projects, good on your curriculum, free sodas.

    Cons

    HR is a mess, they dont care about the people, mexicans take over the place even if they dont know what their doing. My advice is to learn everything you can and run!

    Pros

    work is very challenging, lots of opportunities to implement high-impact initiatives, company culture is family-oriented

    employees are rated only by hard facts, not by leadership competencies displayed in getting the job done; too hierarchical; cost-effectiveness is overly emphasized at the expense of market leadership

    Pros

    Cisco phones, SAP..The only thing is that you can get experience in a crazy fast paced environment with lots of nonsense rules and tons of bureaucracy.

    Cons

    It is a company that grew up too fast, therefore there are not clear policies on how to do things and everything depends on Mexico, they are the ones making choices and they have no clue on what is happening on the other countries.

    Advice to Management

    Get down to earth, they are up there like if they are more intelligent than you..there is a clear wall between senior management and any other person..totally vertical..

    Pros

    good salary and good benefits. Some areas, like customer service and marketing are very good.

    Cons

    poor mentality, poor values...the worse treatment of employes ever.

    Advice to Management

    They dont care about customers and employe. A lot of times we delivered produts over than shelf life. The small bussines sufer with that because the most of time the could not check the shelf life, and lose products. Terrivel , terrivel values. .
