Pros

I found that you could take on as many challenges as you wanted and support from co-workers is great, but local and international

Cons

They keep re-cycling the old management, time for lots more new blood.

Advice to Management

Practice what you preach

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Offers an excellent platform to contribute to the engineering industry.
    Oppurtunity provided to try other roles within the same company.

    Cons

    Possibly not a complete exposure to other work cultures. Timings may not exactly coincide with the far east making work lag at times.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A Global Company with opportunities to travel and interact with all cultures. If you are there long enough you will travel. Many long term employees are fiercely loyal and have never worked anywhere else, a pro and a con. The benefits are good, including adoption allowances not many companies have. Good bonus program once you reach the senior management levels.

    Cons

    Slow to respond to change, some managers believe employees are like pencils, keep using it by shaving more and more off until there's nothing left, then toss it. You need to be able to hold your own in office politics to get ahead. Advancement is sometimes based on your ability to work the system and personal grudges come into play if you've perceived to have crossed someone.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify, entire company is heavily affected by economy. But you look to be in a good spot once the economy does rebound, if you can last that long.
