    Pros

    Good benefits, good salary. Multi-cultural environment. Recognized enterprise that has good reputation on the market. Continous improvement and adaptation to technology changes.

    Cons

    Uncertain future might cause stress to employees. Much coorporate burocracy, and many employees/managers driving company same way as twenty years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Homologate the same criteria everywhere. Coorporate directives are almost ever clear, try to push all operations to follow them and get rid off many middle management.

    I met good people with great leadership skills and success

    Work overload practice is a company culture at least at SE Region. If you are not ready to work 70-80 hrs per week, and sacrifice family time, you will not last for long.
