I have been working at Upstream

Pros

- Most people are friendly and professional
- Atmosphere is generally good, unless an executive just crapped on you or your team
- Potential for professional growth
- Potential for international exposure

Cons

- Some senior people are extremely difficult to work with
- If you're not based in HQ (Athens, Greece), do not expect adequate support
- If you're not a management lackey, you're not going to last long

Advice to Management

It's time to take a long hard look at some of the executives and understand that not everyone can the move from start-up to company - delivering does not supersede people skills at all time, and the bottom line is not solely cash-based in a proper organisation!
