    Pros

    Well-organised, lots of training, lots of benefits

    Workload is not well distributed. Some people are burdened with too much work, and some people practically do nothing.

    Many thanks for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had the impression of a missbalanced workload distribution. Since you don't work for our company anymore and cannot speak to your local HR contact person we have taken note of this and will implement it into our feedback that will be forwarded. Thanks very much and all the best to you.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits for employees

    Cons

    Upper management needs to trained or retrained on how to treat employees. They need to get a better understanding on how to speak to adults in a work place setting. The Supervisor and/or the Coordinators aren't always right.

    Pros

    Pay is the same for everybody. Above average for the region. Benefits are pretty good. Site is in it's 1st. year so getting in on the ground floor. Large enough that you can transfer after 6mos. to just about any where in the world.

    Cons

    Not much room for promotion. Move manager around a lot. You may have a manager from another state one week. No accountability for adverse behavior. Work a lot of mandatory overtime.
