    Pros

    I would say the good people that work in there.

    Cons

    My boss put me in charge of two shifts because he didn't wanted to hire another guy. I had to work more than 15 hour a day all the days of the week, and when I was at home I used to receive several calls that couldn't even sleep. (to be honest that made feel my life miserable). If I asked my boss my right to have at least a free weekend he just made feel like if was a lazy guy and a bad element disobeying all his orders.

    The management team wants everything done in the moment, that causes that nothing in the company works well, every time things go wrong due to lack of time to properly complete the things.

    Management team motivate personnel by constantly saying that there lots of cheap people that wanted our jobs. When you are in trouble they don't help you, they just push more your neck.

    Advice to Management

    -Stop Management by Fear (It does not help, that only increases the insatisfaction and therefore the overhead rotation)
    -Treat your employees as people (They have their own life and feelings)
    -create a efficient system.
    -Help and address the issues together with your people in a proper way.
    -Dedicate more time in creating a good work system from the ground, (otherwise you are always going to have the same problems).

    Pros

    Fast paced, move as quick as you want if you are willing to put in the work. Can have work life balance but it will work against you for promotions. High level exposure if you want it. If you are mobile, you will move fast

    Cons

    Grad program is used to get young talent in the door but they are promoted faster than people not in the program. Can be tough sometimes, expectations are high but reward is high

    Pros

    As long as you are capable, years of working is not a consideration for moving upward in the corporate level. Fast pace and challenging works make the life full of sparkles.

    Cons

    RB is a result oriented and not a people driven company. As such, it does not provide job security to the employee. Do not have long term strategic, focus only on the short term benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the expats if do want to squeeze the operation cost. Invest on the people with providing trainings.
