    Great way to boost your marketability in the work force

    Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Polomolok (Philippines)

    ProsEasy jobs, CSR programs and employees' benefits... There were lots of programs for the employees to enjoy like family day and foundation day. The company will issue free transportation from your home to the work place, and vice versa. They provide lots of training for the employees and opportunity to travel as well to those who belong in the upper management.

    ConsMost managers (technical ones) in this company are not qualified for a position. They get hired because the HR division has poor recruitment skills. They tend to show-off their good organizational development skills, but taking for granted their recruitment processes.

    People working in this company are already very old. Consequence is that they tend to work not in their best because of repetition of procedures, and resistance to developmental changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the old employees (particularly the managers) with fresh and enthusiastic people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
