    Pros

    Employee benefits are amazing - 16 weeks paid maternity leave in addition to the gov't scheme, subsidised private health, very generous annual training budget and possibility of jobs worldwide.

    Cons

    Very conservative culture with lots of red tape and a seemingly anti-innovation sentiment that contradicts the advertised company values. It's very rare to be promoted internally, most employees that are have left and come back a few years later in higher positions.

  2. Hectic, Tiring and repetitive !!

    Pros

    The Work is really exciting and adventurous. Good salary. Employee safety is of paramount importance.Read about the policies at the official website. You'll know much better about the company.

    Cons

    Lots of travelling that you'll get tired of it. The posting is usually in remote locations so forget the 21st century life style and start seeing man vs wild on nat geo. U have to be emotionally very strong to survive in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the recruitment procedure and send some technically sound people to take interviews who atleast know things else than pumps. (the guy didn't even know what is a pelton turbine)
