    Pros

    Allows you to work with the latest technology in the market
    Processes and procedures very well established
    IT makes you feel important part of the company

    Cons

    Professional growth is slow and it's not meritocratic.

    Advice to Management

    It will be good if you start implementing better ways to develop a professional career, the approach currently used is old and the company is loosing young talents.

  2. Paternalistic culture all the way!!

    Pros

    Stability
    Top Edge technology exposure
    Good Benefits and above Average Pay
    Just get In and stay until retirement... (if you want)

    Cons

    Could get very political
    Meritocracy doesn't exist
    Management normally appreciates more the seniority than productivity
    job promotions are scarce and depends a lot in loyalties and friendships with higher management

    Advice to Management

    Normally the hardest and most exciting part is to get in, you will probably get an acceptable salary offer but already inside it's really hard to grow, no matter how hard you work (most of the employees work like donkeys) and no matter the results, you need to get into the "peñoles process", were most of the times people literally get old there to catch a promotion. Management is so paternalistic that bad employees can survive there without being bothered and good employees pull their hair out trying to succeed with any benefit... equality is the norm, raises come yearly and are topped for all the departments but normally the raise is only to match inflation no for merit because you did a great job.

    My advice is that you need to find a way to recognize your top performers or they can go away, and is sad because at the end you will find that only the lucky ones that got a promotion and the conformists are the ones that are backing you up.
