    Pros

    40 hour work week was enforced, so we weren't forced to work more without overtime, good salary relative to work done, building provided very good physical security, cafeteria on site.

    Cons

    Small cubicle office space, work became monotonous, rules changed frequently, evaluation system did not provide incentive to produce quality work, only to work fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more flexibility and decision-making ability to the workers.
