    I have been working at Intracom Telecom full-time

    Pros

    - Technology school; you can learn a lot
    - Good work vs personal life balance

    Cons

    - Salaries went down once and frozen there
    - Virtual evaluation procedure: just for the ISO, no one gets rewarded based on their evaluation
    - No personal evolution ending up doing same things for decades
    - Too many managers, too few engineers
    - Upper managers are the same for decades, with frozen minds from the past
    - Building too old; has major issues including moisture on walls and poor cleaning from outsource cleaning company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider your most valuable asset: human resources. HR practices from the past are not welcome and make people disappointed.

    I have been working at Intracom Telecom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee. If you dare to drink it!

    Cons

    Bored to death! You are going to be outsourced for a big company (Intracom is a supplier actually) in the field and you end up doing boring stuff. They play the piano and you dance, no questions asked!!!
    In a few years you are going to forget any valuable technology you know.
    Ridiculous pay and salary reductions due to austerity measures!
    It takes forever to get any kind of promotion.
    Good luck taking time off, despite there being an overtime "day-off policy".
    Your code is constantly invaded, and pillaged by half-witted numb-nuts that would rather change your code to kowtow to a half-baked QE test, rather than fix the test.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop working for others and get a product! Let your talents design a breakthrough product. You 've got great engineers - please use them to do something innovative. They 've got the skills.

    Pros

    I cannot think of any. Maybe the fact that you can find a few good people that you can learn from.

    Cons

    Management, salary, over-time, lay-offs... No training, no increase in salary...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your payment and pay the developers more.

    -casual and friendly atmosphere where everyone is willing to help each other learn
    -like minded people who take pride from their jobs and are focused on the result
    -very good relations with Ericsson who are partners for more than 15years now

    Cons

    -compensation & benefits (wages/bonuses) should be directly related to the provided work & to the contribution of each employe to the company
    -project managers/team leaders stay the same for many years and are reluctant to try new things, hear ideas from other people or help to evolve the company
    -not many opportunities to rise up the ladder
    -being under the influence of Intracom Holdings, it's difficult for the company to make decisions autonomously

    -be open and sincere with people
    -try to see further down the road and don't be so shortsighted
    -pick the right people for the job
    -give back to people who contribute for the good of the company
