    Pros

    -Great people -Great products -Company VERY well respected by Drs -Good work/life/balance

    Cons

    -Management always seem to be 1 year behind. Projects are launched before all the etails have been worked out. -Career progression depends solely on your manager. -Bonus structure is a joke - no transparency and always a reason each quarter why it wont be paid out -Metrics are used as the barometer here - no importance placed on value of customer

    Advice to Management

    Before you launch something make sure all the details are worked out. Base bonus structure on market share, not from targets set in an office in Singapore


  2. Good company, but can use some process improvement

    Pros

    They respect you. The compensation is quite competitive. Benefits are pretty good too. They strike a decent balance between work, life.

    Cons

    It would be nice to cut out some of those processes that are not necessary to speed up the decision making to move thing forward.

    Advice to Management

    US business accounts for about 50% of the total business, US management team should be the one making speedy decision after careful consideration instead of letting UK mgr hold thing up.
