    Pros

    Good pay. Great training and career development opportunities.

    Cons

    Company unfairly takes advantage of local laws and regulations. Pay for some manufacturing positions in Mexico were so low they could be considered exploitation even though their American counterparts would in the $25usd/hour range. A 48 hour (max legal workweek) would pay less than $100 usd/week so go figure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equal jobs in different countries should provide for similar quality of life when adjusted to the cost of living.
