Pros

Good training and lots of opportunity to see different operations around the world, good expat packages in most locations

Cons

Lots of bureaucracy, slow decisions and a reluctance of letting young engineers take on more responsibility. Management jobs are just enforcing policies rather than meaningful work.

Advice to Management

Empower your younger people as they will learn faster with hands on experience making decisions.

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits for employees, but engineers receive preferential treatment

    Cons

    The performance review process (PMP) is highly political and not at all fair contrary to the corporate policy that is highly touted. Anyone with authority over another can say anything on the review form without proof or documentation. The supervisor's word is FINAL no matter how much the employee protests.

    Advice to Management

    Review your human resources policies and listen and pay attention when an protests a poor review. There is more to the story other than what the supervisor says. Listen to the employee and not just the supervisor!!!
