    Pros

    Great learning place
    Great people to learn from
    A very large company with the real sense of a multinational.
    A very diversified portfolio that can take tough times and still make money.

    Cons

    Lack of courage from managment side to say no to bad initiatives and to admit mistakes.
    Too political and you need to be of certain heritage, origin, and some times religious affiliation to reach certain managerial positions.
    Lots of broken promises
    Not focused on retaining people.
    Not focused on training people
    Not open to diversity and different way of thinking.
    Retaliation for opposing managment opinions is a very common practice.
    lot of procarsination from managment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to different ideas.
    Be open to diversity.
    Admit mistakes
    be accountable for your own actions and mistakes.
    Apply the values you preach about and start with yourselves.
    Implement an effective way of evaluating people rather than the chit chat behind closed doors without telling employees what they need to develop.
    Specifically for Egypt office managment: Stop abusing the company and be ethical employees working for the best of the company rather than working for your own benefits.
