I have been working at KBC Advanced Technologies

Pros

Competitive overall compensation package, despite relatively weak benefits package.
Generally a good-working atmosphere.
Committed, competent and hard-working group of consultants (i.e., engineers).
Very high-level of cooperation between consultants -- virtually no sniping or back-stabbing.

Cons

Very long hours. Most employees expected to routinely give the company significant amounts of "free overtime."
Benefits package relatively weak: No pension, limited vacation allowance, dental/medical benefits lacking.
Frequent scheduling conflicts result in "start-stop" inefficiencies.
Management and sales staff often over-commit employees.
Weak and illogical performance appraisal system harms morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees like people. Support a reasonable balance between work life and family life.

    I worked at KBC Advanced Technologies

    Pros

    Extremely friendly, professional and diverse office environment, which naturally facilitates communication and project progress/success. Plenty of opportunities for internal (free) and external (subsidized) training, as well as subsidized higher education. Comparatively little stress with little influence on personal life, for the most part.

    Cons

    Departmental staffing balance a little off - some departments are a little overstaffed, some are seriously understaffed. Training coverage can be patchy at times, due to not having enough experts to cover a broad range of specialized fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate efficiency can certainly be increased significantly by considering the workloads of each group and re-balancing labor as appropriate.
