    Pros

    - Only good if you are looking to gain few years of experience to apply to better companies

    Cons

    - Reactive Management: Wait for the crisis to happen and then make a decision by scaring everyone
    - Every decision is made by the CEO. No or very poor delegation
    - You will be moved to every department ( same person will be working in marketing one month, sales another and IT next) and if you are not generating revenue directly then you will be fired
    - You will not meet very smart or intelligent people working here.
    - No proper training or guidance
    - No respect to employees, every one is always scared that they might get fired
    - 80% of senior management are related to each other

    Advice to Management

    - Update your website, products and services to suits the millennial
    - Provide proper training and guidance to your employees
    - Respect your employees and they will respect you
    - Give employees authority to make decision without having to approve every minute detail from the CEO

    Pros

    Truly never a dull moment, and you will always be challenged and you will be definitely be ever learning as long as you are that kind of person. A Global company, 20 locations worldwide. Represented in every major city on a map. They set the standard for Project Management training.

    Cons

    Not for the non-flexible and it is not a place you "coast".
