    What you've read is true: disorganized, political, and out of touch with its employees

    I have been working at Produban full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed about work hours and schedules, friendly coworkers. Decent life/work balance.

    Cons

    Below average pay, no training whatsoever. Tasks are undefined and unplanned, yet you're expected to perform miracles. Politics are prevalent and will cause departments and inner factories to blame each other while doing little to help. Some departments are notoriously understaffed and employees are struggling to barely keep up with the workload It is very well known that there is a big preference for spaniards for promotions and permanent positions.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people, give them defined tasks and goals, and more importantly give them the means to achieve them.

    I have been working at Produban full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, experience working with teams in different time zones in a global company, close to T and parking

    Cons

    Management runs the business as if it is the 19th century. “Shut up and do as I tell you”. Politics is all about blaming other IT departments (especially ISBAN) instead of focusing on solving problems. No training, very poor planning, lack of communications and lack of help from other departments, unless is escalated, which makes projects late or very hard to accomplish on time. Very rude environment with managers (Specially Spaniards) yelling and mistreating others. You need to be there at least 11 hours a day or they will think that you are not a good enough employee. No possibilities of growth unless you are a Spaniard. If there is a position open, they will bring somebody form Spain instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point on giving advice because they will not listen to you. However, here are my 2 cents: Listen to others, train, plan, make employees feel as they are part of the company and treat people as what they are.. “People”

    Pros

    Exposition to new technologies, friendly environment

    Cons

    Very bad management, projects take forever to be accomplished. Plenty of contractors with not clear future for climbing the ladder or gain responsibilities in hands on company politics or endogamy

    I worked at Produban full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IT as an opportunity to work with various technologies but the load that is placed on permanent staff makes you too busy to learn more skills than what is purely necessary to do your job.

    Cons

    Interesting projects tend to be given to contractors which decreses the morale of the permanent staff, which results in people leaving after a few years.

    Pros

    Amazing Co-workers, decent team work, and a very all round educational experience.

    Cons

    Ended contract without notice, management are patronising, militant, and selfish. Extremely disappointing being treated as a number rather than employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider your employees as human beings, rather than school children. Try to keep in mind that the people come before the ASA and the call queue, we are not there to be treated like slaves just so you can get your bonus.
