    A good employer, but requires too much of its employees.

    Pros

    Very good employer, good benefits, high level of knowledge at all levels, opportunity to work in global projects, and culturally diverse.

    Cons

    It requires long hours; you end up working 50 to 60 hours a week for a regular salary (low salary if we take into consideration all the stress, responsibility and hours devoted to the work). The environment is very demanding; you end up living only to work. If you have a family you will have to put work first, projects are demanding and usually need immediate assistance, (so it can mean working until very late, weekends, etc...) . It has an employee review process that is very strict and you are being compared to people who work 70 and 80 hours a week, so even if you work 50 you will still look like if you did not put enough effort. You actually feel like a machine, forget about your personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work/life balance is not really true; it is a place full of workaholics.
