Pros

It's a job. There's not much I can say more than it's a job. I am a highly educated and skilled professional but my tallants are wasted here.

Cons

Poor management. They don't have a clue what is happening int he field. They don't know how to listen and if they do, there's no action. Senior mgnt. needs to go out in the field and try to use the tools they have provided. They would see that the programs MIGHT work sometimes and the procedures often conflict. They may learn that for the mostr part training is sorely lacking and left to OJT / chance. It's a big company with lots of sites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

That a course in human behavior.

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate environment. Work life balance is excellent. Many employees utilize the gym during lunch hours. People are generally friendly and nice to work with. They treat you with respect on a personal level.

    Cons

    Talent is get what you pay for. Since the pay is low, you don't get as much as you would like from co-workers. Top heavy management structure leads to micromanagement of people who actually do the work. Too many corporate controls for a company of its size. Lack of co-worker accountability leads to frustration on the job. If you then do the co-workers job, then they will defer even more work to you. More frustration. Lack of training and career development is also frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people, especially management, accountable for tasks and deliverables. This leads to poor corporate performance and lack of respect to complete key tasks.

    I have been working at Prometric part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can easily get promoted as long as you do everything they want you to do. Upskill and increase your value to apply for higher position with other company. Learn all dirty tricks of management here and apply it to your advantage in your next employment.

    Cons

    I am a downright stupid and idiot for giving Prometric my loyalty and trust for more than 5 years. They pride in helping test takers all around the world in giving fair and equal opportunity to test which help them to have better living and be better person. Sadly, Prometric's employees are not given the same opportunity when discrimination, harrassment, bullying and victimisation by management are allowed and protected by the company. My job now is at stake due to fake promises by senior manager, signed fraud agreement, and being optimistic that the management is not as bad as they said. Maybe because test takers pay for the fair and equal opportunity, whereby employees are being paid and do not entitled for the same opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If anyone from the highest level of management in Prometric or the CEO himself care to take a stand on behalf of this long-service, loyal employee, I dare you to respond to this post and prove to the whole world that Prometric is holding to the Values they have pledged to.
