    Pros

    Celebration' culture, great enviroment and business structure, great bar where you can taste their products.

    Cons

    Too many business changes with less than a year, reorganizations are very often and many people are fired with that, as in most of the companies you can be in a great company but often the leader that you have won't help you to be happy.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership with authority belongs to the industrial era, get over it.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits compared to other companies and there are career opportunities

    Cons

    Too many reorgs and they are not well managed (sometimes spit a department and then undo it in a couple of years). It's more important who you know than what you know to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    More transparent promotion process, and similar requirement among departments.
