    I worked at Empresas Polar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Venezuela's Best employer by far. Lots of benefits for the employees, the directive makes you feel as part of the success of the company in every opportunity they have.

    Cons

    Highly competitive environment, opportunities for promotion are hard to get because of the size of the company.

    The company culture can be a bit overwhelming sometimes (they won't let you drink Coca Cola, Zulia or Nestea. Ever.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the good job!

    Pros

    Great company to work for not only because of the salaries but because of the people who works in. You will find help everywhere when you need it to learn new things or to achieve goals. Family is very important not only for the employee but also for the Organization. Very good health benefits for the employee and family. Quality, passion, joy and commitment define this Company.

    Need to develop training plans to new employees and let them focus on them. Sometimes you can get a lot of activities to develop that aren't inherent to your position.

    The company is always looking for new products and challenges so employees have to be learning constantly to achieve goals. Sometimes Employees have a lot o different projects which can create a negative stress environment. About promotions some people think that company is not completely fair, however I consider that a not objective judgment.
