    I worked at Besi full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, good salary, good conditions. Was a very good and well organized company and still benefits of that; however the curve is now going down. Business is interesting but oscillating.

    Cons

    Relocation to Asia ongoing, all departments underdimensioned (=resources overloaded). Any existing or new position is at risk of being laid off. No perspectives.

    Advice to Management

    Be open about what is planned for the short/mid term with the workforce. They used to be loyal people...
