    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity to travel and learn new technologies

    Cons

    They do not keep up with current pay standards and knowledge and length of service are not rewarded financially

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to look at the core employees and recognize those that keep the company moving forward year after year. There needs to be recognition beyond the occassionaly attaboy.

    I have been working at Efacec Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting projects and technologies
    Looks good on CV when applying to Portuguese jobs
    Might meet and work with some talented people, but depends a lot in the department we are within

    Cons

    No career path, unless you are "friends" or family of influential people in the company.
    No meritocracy.
    Ridiculous performance reviews.
    Most of people have fixed working hours, even if you are in R&D....
    Huge discrepancy of salaries for the same position.
    Middle management is useless and they just do as told so they can keep their salary and benefits.
    Execs don't care about what's going on. If they can keep their credit cards and fancy cars, everything is fine.
    Long working hours.
    Outdated development processes that just simply don't work.
    Audits are ridiculous and embarrassing. Company just keep with certifications due to the company influence in the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just quit...

    Great work environment, nice benefits.
    Flexible hours.

    Very high discrepancies between salaries for the same function.

    People are expected to do the same things for several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal recruiting would be nice to make the work environment more dynamic. People spend several years doing the same stuff.

    Needs to reinforce communication skills in order to assure the commitment of all envolved in a project
    More empowerment efforts needed.
