    Pros

    International operations. Strong IT systems and complex environment. Good talent to work with if you get an opportunity to interact.

    Cons

    Toxic and abusive environment. Especially in the corporate finance area. High Turnover. My position has been filled by 4 employees in the past 2 years. Current CFO of Americas provides no direction; but has no problem in criticizing or ridiculing an employee's effort.

    Treat people with respect and dignity.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and direct manager, lots of freedom on the road. No micromanagement, you are given a territory and it's up to you to execute. Company van, not chained to a desk, just a meeting every other week.

    Cons

    Used to be a generous bonus/recognition structure. You felt invested in the business. If your territory performed well or if you went above and beyond it reflected in your paycheck. All of that changed the last 3 years or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with the pep talks, let us share in the success once again!
