Pros

it was a very good experience and a great company to start working for as a recent college graduate at an entry level position

Cons

new hirers and interns are sometimes left unattended to and they can go for weeks to months without doing any real work.

Advice to Management

Take time to understand the needs and career path of new and young employees so that the company can reap the benefits in the future.

    Pros

    The company is a paper tiger the procedures are good. It is a good place to learn how to deal with stress.

    Cons

    They tend to give you more work than you can perform, and when you do the work it just encourages the overload.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise what you cannot deliver.

    Pros

    There is an opportunity for variety of work and exposure to areas outside of your discipline. A major plus is the ability to network with global colleagues and leverage best practices from all regions of operations.

    Cons

    The work culture is unique to the company which is true of every company but telling the story of the culture is not as accurate as it could be. Flexible work environment: Not exactly true as there have been several sitautions noted where there is no sound business case on NOT allowing the flexibility but due to leader bias the answer is no. Doesn't resonate with the culture story being told.

    Advice to Management

    One area for improvement is in the culture and engagement space. Talk the talk and walk the walk as this is a critical component to company success and employee retention.
