    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The projects are very interesting and the many locations are exotic. Travel budgets are not what they used to be and reimbursements often don't cover all expense.

    Cons

    Time demands are extreme and overtime is not generally authorized. It's shut up and do it or look for another job. Many newer employees won't put up with this and leave after a year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Pay and treat employees better. Many of the supposed "benefit" packages like wellness and happiness they've bought from outside providers are of little value. Cash talks.

    Pros

    The compensation is above average.

    Cons

    Long hours. Poor living accommodations. Unethical Leadership. lack of transparency into process and decisions to the Project. Don't expect assistance or documented process or procedures. These things are intentionally not documented to allow for management decisions on matters. In other words, if you are not "liked" don't expect much, actually expect the opposite of much. Work processes are very backwards, creating a meltdown in your brain synapsis, making this the challenge

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring. You need to keep hiring becasue we keep leaving. This is how you can keep profit margin and report back to corporate that 'all is well"
