    Family business, not professional, no real growth opportuities for non-Portuguese, weak leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI don't see any pros for a true professional at this time unless senior management makes some radical changes.

    Conslack of trust for anyone who is not Portuguese and as such, your ability to make a (much needed)change for the better is severely limited. Not a give and take environment. Not an environment that nurtures talent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCoud be a great institution but you need stronger leaders / top management from outside Lisbon if you want to survive and you need to start taking decisions based on what's best for the company rather than what's best for promoting each individuals personal agenda for power and control.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating, not allowing employees to advance within corporate ladder

    Associate Director (Former Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

    ProsThe company takes a fairly lax attitude towards employees being able to reconcile family life with their personnal lives, as well as having a few benefits for families, such as subsidies and loans.

    ConsThe culture in the company remains very hierarchic, not allowing advancement from outsiders unless you are in the "clique" of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that the company should make an effort to adapt its culture to that of the places it has acquired, and not simply attempt to remould the existing culture to the one they are bringing

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
