Pros

Excellent people, excellent training for technical task, professional skills and career, decent compensation, decent benefits, flexible work styles in-office or home-mobile, good sense of belonging, good opportunity for an on-going variety in job role for those interested in moving from one job type to another.

Cons

Too many internal meetings reduces time in front of customers, complex matrix management structure, lots of chiefs but fewer workers. Process and lots of administration surrounding almost anything. Expense cut-backs have greatly reduced management levers to maintain morale.

Advice to Management

Truly walk the talk. This company has great values, and incredible breadth in vision and capability, but not everyone lives up to them, or even tries very hard to do so.

    Pros

    One of the best company from ITC local market. Very profesional team, a lot of trainings a very good company to develop a career. A good brand for your CV.

    Cons

    To many procedures but once you become familiar with that will be more easy to work with. Sometime decision is take outside Romania and region interest is on big market rather than your expectation however can be handle too if you are preaty sure what to expect to get and what are you going to offer in return.
