    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    They do work hard to try and make a work/home life ratio acceptable. SITA is also very good at giving employees time for volunteering with community groups

    Cons

    The headquarters in Geneva is out of touch with what is going on in the rest of the company.
    There is no accountability for managers who run over budget, over time, and do not deliver products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of reorganizing the base so that you can trick the numbers and make your bonus, you should remove entire layers of duplicate or overlapping mgt positions
