    Pros

    Very good place for new graduates that are excited for challenges, especially since the company has the fixed step career program period for freshouts for several career ladders. On each step, the engineer needs to successfully complete an exciting technical training and a non-technical training, and also doing predefined online learning, on job training to get promoted.

    Cons

    - very volatile to economic condition
    - in some cases, being more expert will hold the engineer from moving/progressing
    - high mobility, less family time
    - high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    - recognize the performing engineer more
    - provide more fair chance to develop/transfer

    Pros

    The diversity in people you work with is great and so is the international positions. The company has a great reputation for it's service.

    Cons

    Some field positions and poor management result in unsafe hours worked for any employee. In 5 months at one location I worked everyday (including weekends) except 7 sporadic days and of course no additional compensation for that - yes I resigned.
