    Pros

    I absolutely loved my job and company. Most of the people were very nice and well educated despite doing the job you could do straight from the high school and don't need University degree.
    Career opportunities are good if you're very patient.

    Cons

    Promotions based on years of service rather than performance. You might love your job but once you get 50% more of it than other people just because you are capable and there's no recognition to follow, this can very easily lead to frustration. Putting higher amount of work on high potential people while letting under performing ones through the system is just wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say words, act upon them. If you would, I would never leave. :/ Sincerely, fire people if they are badly underperforming and don't just move them from department to department.

    Pros

    Great working conditions, good teams and colleagues, regular team buildings and company events, several training opportunities, possibility to climb up the ladder in one field or change to different fields within the company, competent management, reasonable demands

    Cons

    The salaries are quite modest and the nature of tasks is fairly repetitive.
    Fluctuation within the company is quite high, one often gets to work with newcomers.

    Pros

    A good place to gain a lot of business experience, both transferable and non-transferable.
    International environment, lots of people from different parts of the world.
    Structured and organized environment, driven by rules, logic and numbers, no nonsense here.
    Flamboyant business, big numbers.
    Serious company who genuinely cares for the employees.
    Very good health and safety focus.
    Good benefits package.
    The management is open to hear suggestions from the employees, if they make sense.
    Overall good training is available, both in-house or provided by recognized external companies, including learning of foreign languages.
    There are career opportunities but on the long run, for those who are quite patient and can live with the cons over the time.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy and procedures, trivial things become relevant and steal time from the truly important ones; this is the result of the prevailing risk-aversion, all-safe culture at EM.
    Military-like authority and ranking systems, which force employees to continuously 'fight' between them, or they'll become stagnated.
    Some good performers according to KPI's are promoted to supervisors but lack the necessary people skills.
    The bad performers just stay at their current position for years, continuing with their evident low performance and being a bad influence.

    Advice to Management

    While I think that the safe-side culture is the correct one for such a company, It would be good if they could try to reduce the internal regulations and make the work more agile, in those places or situations where it may be possible.

    Pros

    Provide opportunities to fresh graduates, care about the employee wellness, no excessive pressure, relaxed environment, people does not get easily fired

    Cons

    Slow salary increase, slow and poor employee development for top performers, expect a terrible performer to be moved every year when a top performer has to wait for three or more for it

    Advice to Management

    Keep a close eye on your talent and develop them, as we know you won't pay them better, the movements of the bad performers is somewhat offensive for your talent
