    Pros

    Great work environment, possibilities of mobility across countries and business areas. Great chances of traveling and good work-life balance

    Cons

    Lot of bureaucracy and political consideration, many short term contracts and not many possibilities of becoming part of the staff. Non-staff employees do not have complementary health insurance


  2. Politics, personal agendas and little work

    Pros

    Incredible place with lots of potential. Money is not a problem.

    Cons

    Political institution. Nobody (staff) is fired for commiting the same mistakes over and over or for being extremely inconsequent managers/chiefs. Hierarchy always prevail over meritocracy. Knowing someone is the key for grow. Money is wasted on stupid and non-sense projects. Nobody is serioulsy accountable and there's little compromisse with real results. Almost all energy is spent on politics and defending "territories".

    Advice to Management

    Hire some new people. Get rid of latino mambo-jambo and do the work, for the sake of the money you earn.
