Pros

Interesting work for the position, and managers who seem to be sincere in their support of personal and professional development. Company well-positioned in emerging markets. Flexible about work hours and work-from-home while remaining focussed on how employees can add value.

Cons

HR was somewhat obstructionist / rather rule bound. Salary offered was low for the industry, education and level of experience. Very difficult to maneuver to get things done, because the management hierarchy is so complex and responsibilities are unclear.

Advice to Management

The management structure is so complex we spend more energy on internal coordination than on serving customers. That aspect is the biggest dis-satisfier and the biggest threat to our success.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, some flexibility with start time, upper management kept employees informed about financial status of the Company

    Cons

    Tended to micromanage employees. Performance reviews included input of peers and internal customers.

    Advice to Management

    Not every employee has management capabilities


  2. Not a bad place to work if you can stay out of the crosshairs.

    Pros

    Benefits are good if you can stay long enough to accrue. Some managers have been trained how to get the best out of their employees, and are a pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    Rather than using existing employees in different capacities, upper management uses periodic mass lay-offs, which are a waste of human capital and company resources. Some managers are not trained in effective leadership and psychology, and make decisions based on emotion instead of logic.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and hold managers accountable for recognizing unique skills of their employees and promoting job advancement.
