    Pros

    Small company atmosphere in a global corporation
    Interesting business
    International travel and work opportunities
    Opportunity to participate in an important business making a difference in developing nations

    Cons

    Big company bureaucracy in what's essentially a small company
    Pace of work is immediate - everything has to be done right now
    Work-life balance heavily weighted towards work
    Compensation and benefits relatively poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to figure out what it is. Too much of the structure (organization, processes, systems) is or feels ad hoc and slapped together, like it's been assembled from mismatched parts. The company needs to develop a road plan for growth, put it down on paper somewhere and then follow it. As it is, plans get conceived, changed and dropped with seeming impunity.

    Pros

    * Travel
    * Exposure to commodities
    * Ability to relocate easily
    * Bonus if you can prove top results
    Overall...recommend.

    Cons

    The company is private and therefor it does need to adhere to all international standards.
    Sometimes it ssems that there is more value placed on perception of loyalty vs anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create career paths and that are transparent and facilitate that.
    Recognize that the world is changing and that you will need to hire top talent.
