Pros

It is a small head office with a relatively good atmosphere and can do mentality. It is not an hours for the sake of hours mentality.

Cons

It is an unforgiving company and there is a high attrition rate in the first year for al lfunctions. Most of the head office functions are relatively small so opportunities outside of finance can be limited.

Advice to Management

None. Everyone knows the score. Its a typical sales company.

    Pros

    Strong branding and marketing. Great industry presence.
    Fun people, transparent payout of incentives.

    Cons

    top down management with very little for local personnel to move.
    management team is rigid and organization brings in foreign personnel instead of promoting internally. (typically a problem for local employees as you do not see any in the management level)

    Advice to Management

    work on your cons.

    Pros

    people in this company are very casual, they have parties almost ever Friday. You will work closely to your manager.

    Cons

    The compititions there were a lot, mangers will not protect you if you do anything wrong. They will not tell you what is wrong before you have done things wrongly.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assign traineess to any managers before the training program is done. It is very unfair if the manager is not responsible.
