    Pros

    Very interesting work which is truly global. Feel like I am part of a local and international team. Have colleagues I can trust. Great benefits with lots of choice, my annual pay increases have reflect the increase responsibilities of my role. Growing company with great future plans - so lots of opportunity

    Cons

    Far too many projects ongoing at one time, lack of clear vision from management, long hours are not expected but are needed to do the job so you end up working very long hours.

    Advice to Management

    do less but do it better. Get a tactical plan together - that way some of conflicting projects can be managed better

    Pros

    The company was always very generous with employee benefits - stock purchase, pension etc. I trust that they have continued with that

    Cons

    Career opportunities and advancement wasn't a strong suit where I worked. There were limited options.

    Advice to Management

    At the time I was there it was a great place to work, although longer term it became limiting.
