Pros

Compensation was fair-bonus program was appropriate
Yearly performance and merit reviews
Training and development focus at al levels
Senior leadership in the US is quite competent and spends time understanding business issues

Cons

Heavy politics in the EMEA region
Personal differences kept individuals from being promoted; competence ignored
Often the method of communication took precedence over substance.
Process oriented; took a long time to get things done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Truly practice being an Equal Opportunity Employer worldwide
Focus more on results and less on process documentation
Review impact of offshoring on quality and individuals

    Pros

    The company is a solid place to work that does care about the people who work for them. Workforce development and work-life balance is relatively important.

    Cons

    Lots of resources but too conservative on its strategic approach. Leadership programs actually lack a lot of leadership and careers path are not very well defined. Once you're in one of these programs, you have very little control over the direction it takes. Very little mentor support or desire from senior leaders to do so. Very disorganized in some management areas, particularly at the corporate level.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
