    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good pay for salary workers
    Lots of training available (with proper approvals)
    International experience available for college grads
    High level of technical expertise

    Cons

    Culture clash: the way they work is just very different than an American way of working and this is never communicated to the local or the international employees.
    The international postings do not come with training on laws or business culture. This means there can be violations without the person knowing they are in violation. Even the dress code is different from country to country.
    Announcements for the most basic of things are never communicated. Rumors abound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the managers a chance to succeed by teaching them about the area they are going to be working including labor law, safety, and culture difference before they start managing people. Link international appointees with a local that can transition the language and process barriers. Implement a way of thinking, not specific items that must be installed regardless of local barriers. Hire technical experts and managerial experts. Hire long term managers rather than short term managers to facilitate long term transformations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should focus in eliminating expatriates in management positions and promote the good local people.
    Should be more honest to people regarding career advancement opportunities for Canadians
