Pros

There was god opportunity for advancement. It was a small company, so you could experience more.

Cons

Limited workspace and lots of overtime. There was always an expectation that when you left you were available to work from home. If you were working for the right person, the opportunity for advancement was there but there was no official review program so hard to make it unless part of the in-crowd. Small company trying to be bigger so seemed to be slowly forgetting about the importance of keeping its people happy.

    Pros

    NONE that I can think of

    Cons

    Pathetic leadership, Human Resources team is worthless, old equipment, lack of safety concerns for its employees, no one is a long term employee any longer, below average pay, below average benefits, payroll cant get checks right, you can be told in country you have been promoted but never see a pay adjustment as promised and if you do, its nothing but attitude form the so called HR payroll group.

    Pros

    Good company with friendly employees. Very trusting in the ability of their people. Decent compensation and benefits, Rotation is standard.

    Cons

    Tend to put the cart before the horse and I don't think that some of the people put as much into work as they should on behalf of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people happy
