    Pros

    Learning something new everyday. Expanding my people skills through dealing with people with various backgrounds. Transmed has a very flexible environment where you can try different approaches in order to achieve your KPIs. It's not like a bulk, stable multinational company with so many bureaucracies.

    Cons

    Micromanagement could be experienced at some level. High stress level

    Pros

    its a family company. they will not fire you unless you are really asking for it. you can move quickly across roles, as long as management likes you.
    you get exposed a lot, and learn on the job. its like a school.

    very very low compensation and horrible benefits. actually no benefits.
    high turnover, bad hr, bad first line managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you dont want your people to leave, stop favouritism, start paying market averages, and get an hr department. then only you will grow.
