Very basic compensation and benefits. You drive your own career development. Management needs much improvement.

Test Engineer (Current Employee)
Calamba, Laguna (Philippines)

Pros- opportunity to experience development activities
- travel opportunities to other company sites
- relaxed environment, depending on counterparts and operations being supported

Cons- very basic benefits (health/HMO, meal subsidy)
- cafeteria service is awful
- less organized project management
- cost-cutting policies are insulting
- most employees come from mid-to-low ranking schools
- less competitive colleagues, not challenged to excel

Advice to Senior Management- provide better project and people management
- revamp employee benefits
- improve on food and cafeteria service
- hire decent people with pleasing personalities
