    Pros

    The work was rewarding. Each day on the job site was slightly different which made the days go by quickly. Jobs were fast paced and required quick research and responses to keep the job moving in efficient manner.

    Cons

    Standard work weeks entailed 6 days a week and at least 60 hours per week. All projects were in remote locations and many took 60 minutes to reach from the nearest city. Balance between work and personal time was not easy to maintain.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more on site man power to the Construction Team so that the individual stress can be reduced. Provide better channel between the engineering team overseas and the onsite management.

    Pros

    The organizational structure is flat and one has exposure to all levels of executive management. The work environment is multi-cultural which makes for an interesting employee mix. The jobs are interesting and demanding

    Cons

    From an industry perspective, the salary levels are low. There is not much opportunity for advancement as most executive management is located overseas. The work/life ratio is definitely skewed toward work. There is not much praise for a job well done

    Advice to Management

    Since upper management has recently changed, there is nothing I can had. The prior CEO was excellent to work with.

    Pros

    Generally good teamwork in corporate group .

    Cons

    Decisions are driven by what is convenient or in the interest of the local plant/plant manager, rather than driven by executive/corporate management for the benefit of entire company.
