    Pros

    Work can be good and rewarding as long as you stay away from executive management.

    Cons

    False promises. No career path or promotions plans. False promises on pay increases. Parent company in France takes all profits and leaves its employees holding the bag. Strategy is planned, but execution of that is terrible. Central to ignition 2020 plan is engaged employees; but then there has been NO action to actually promote engagement. Many people I talk with feel there is no leadership from the top within organization.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to execute a strategy. Follow through with what you say you are going to do. All credibility has been lost. Morale is at all time low.

    Pros

    The work is varied and interesting. Lots of opportunities to teach yourself new skills. Some very talented people around to meet. Good springboard to better companies and career opportunities for younger hires.

    Cons

    Pays under market value. Long time employees or relatives of top managers in the US have different rules. No internal transparency with financial status. Bonus criteria if they are paid changes often but is not communicated. Pay increases not reflective of performance but more "across the board" or withheld. No incentive to excel. Merger integration a disaster

    Advice to Management

    Mr Cerutti needs to get his managers and others to walk the talk and treat people as the central pillar of the long term strategy. Get rid of the nepotism

    Pros

    international environment, opportunities to travel

    Cons

    there are issues with identifying/matching the profile/skills of the employee with the tasks of the projects. Often overqualified people need to do tasks that can be done by less skilled people, in long term it is demotivating.

    Advice to Management

    to review internal HR processes
