Pros

J'ai apprécié mon travail, mes formidables collègues et amis, le patron, plus que dans toute autre société. Gros avantages, les initiatives sont soutenues par la société. Le seul endroit où nous avions un chef du personnel pour nous pour les repas quotidi

Enjoyed my job, my wonderful colleagues and friends and boss more than any other company. Great benefits and company supported initiatives. The only place where we had our own personal chef on staff for daily lunches.

Cons

La surface de bureau est limitée et étroite avec une très mauvaise climatisation, durant les grosses chaleurs de l'été (entre 30°c et 35°c), cela rend le travail difficile. J'étais très haut dans l'organisation, mais aucune proposition d'avancement ne m'a été faite, de sorte que c'était comme atteindre le sommet sans avoir aucune perspective de carrières et opportunités. Toutes les décisions prennent trop de temps. Il devait y avoir une accélération pour certaines idées, tandis que d'autres devaient être examinées avec plus de prudence.

Office space was limited and cramped with very bad air conditioning in the hot 30C - 35C heat of summer which made work difficult. I was very high up in the organisation but still not opportunity to advance was offered or given so it looked like a reached a peak for which no amount of accomplishment would offer me further job growth and opportunities. All decisions took way too long. There needed to be a Fast Track for some ideas while others needed to be more cautiously reviewed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Assurez-vous que tous les employés ont une carrière toute tracée qui leur est offerte. S'ils atteignent leurs objectifs, alors c'est un feu-vert pour une promotion ou pour se voir attribuer des responsabilités supplémentaires différentes. Des membres clé

Ensure that every employee has a career path set and offered to them. If they reach their bench marks then that should be a green light to be moved up or given added or different responsibilities. Reviews and career path was something I always included in my PDP's with key staff but it was a personal choice I made not a company wide initiative.
