    Lack of planning

    ProsChallenging work for engineers
    A lot of learning
    Several important projects going on

    Conslow payment
    critical lack of planning
    difficult work enviroment specially because of political decisions

    Advice to Senior ManagementPDVSA management needs to remember that is a profitable company, the best way to optimize the planing and development of the company is focusing on economical aproach to problems, best wishes (of any political trend) are always leading to erratic objectives and this to lack of organization

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
