Pros

Dynamic organization with many opportnuities to develop skills

Cons

Growing too fast, need to control the growth

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should work to deploy more structrure and process to avoid problems with rapid growth and expansion. Better assimilation of new employees into the organization.

    Former Employee - Professional Services Engineer  in  Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Former Employee - Professional Services Engineer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    Pros

    Has all the usual perks. Can be a good way to network as deal with many operators and some third party vendors. Seems to be great if in test, development (usual s/w busy periods preceding deadlines) or other role (ice cream days, Wednesday breakfasts, on site health checks). Travel if that's what you are after.

    Cons

    In Professional Services - long hours, weekend work, work through holidays etc. little-no "project" bonus on green field sites (as often projects are highly underestimated). Some clueless, time-wasting, project managers that add to the pressure of tight schedules and quite often mislead customers. no pay for all the extra hours and you do not get anywhere near the extra days lost en lieu.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    level the field amongst the different groups. either PS hours drop or they are rewarded for all the extra work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    Pros

    A lot of learning to be gained
    Management does genuinely tries to make this a better workplace
    Some managers do care about the welfare of the staff

    Cons

    Some politics across different organizations in the company, not as rampant as some similarly sized companies but if this is not controlled or discouraged, this may grow.
    Attempts on improvements are not done right yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the folks that work with you better and show it
    You need to spend money to make money, there are a lot of talented people in the company, engineers or not that needs to be appreciated better.
