    Great Company!

    Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsVery comfortable environment in world class company, the brand is known by every customer. You can jump from role to role, the only constant it's the change.
    There is lot of deeply knowledge that the groups share and when you used to look for it, it's an advantage for you.

    ConsThe Salary and compensation is not the best and there is not annual increment in salary.
    Because it too large sometimes it is difficult that every line of business work as only one company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
