    I have been working at Barco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Diverse product base, international sales create interesting legal questions, small department results in broad experience.

    Cons

    Often encounter lack of ownership over projects. Sales focus leaves little room for internal details. US office is highly understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include internal requirements in sales manager job descriptions (i.e. contract ownership, quality review, etc.). Hire more sales support.

    I worked at Barco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work
    Pleasant intelligent colleagues below senior management level

    Cons

    Senior management set wholly unrealistic deadlines and expect these to be met
    Very aggressive and autocratic management style
    Negative feedback coming from the top down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic with what you can expect from your employees. Pay them fairly and equally depending on their contributions. It is not the staffs fault you made a bad purchase when you are making acquisitions.
