    Pros

    Many people are nice and outgoing, the atmosphere is good despite low salary You can surround yourself with talented people (look hard and be perseverant)

    Cons

    Working hard and long hours doesn't get you recognized, you may be verbally rewarded but low chance of promotion Some managers abuse their position and talk down to people Too many managers that have been with the company for a decade No strategy, stuck in production People spend too much time on social media and watching lame videos online and argue they "don't have time" to attend important projects

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your workforce, appreciate your staff. Be humble.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is pretty great. There is generally a great opportunity for travel because they're an international company.

    Cons

    Huge disconnect between local branches and headquarters, you get the feel of that "stereotypical corporate culture". It doesn't seem like a company you could grow passionate for. Upper-level staff seems to look down on lower-level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better communication flow between staff and senior management.

    Cons

    People promoted based on personal relationships. Hard work is not rewarded at all.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people
