    Pros

    Mainly the people as its a young workforce in Geneva. Work/Social life is balanced if you wish it. Benefits include discounts on clothes, travel and lunch subsidy.

    Cons

    Management in ALL areas e.g. HR, Supply Chain, IT, etc are incompetant and only look at their bonus. Progress is only provided if you're willing to be obedient to your managers every command and perform a 12 hour day. Performance reviews and appraisals are not worth the Apple ipad they are written on by Directors and there is little or no training. All Directors are equivalent to Team Leaders in other companies and their lack of experience and people management are evident within the first week. As no formal qualifications are required for any roles, Directors are intellectually weak and only stay at the company for the bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look further than your bonus and reward staff who actually do their job between the working hours of 9-6pm. Any one who need 12 hours per day is obviously incompetant. Act more professional and stop employing people through your own family tree who are unqualified to perform the task but on higher wages than people who have been there for 5 years.
