    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    there are opportunities to wok on some really and challenging projects.
    the new valley office is impressive
    the coffee machine in the new office is excellent

    Cons

    Senior management is made up of a network of males promoted and rewarded largely on the basis of their relationships with each other rather than any aptitude for their job. There is a glass ceiling that seems to prevent female engineers from taking that next step in the business.

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to promote women as well as men.

    "Recommended for fresh grad. Only"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Guidance to get a start, especially useful for fresh grads.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to make sacrifices and expected "be thankful" for it. The HR even mentioned that the high number of employees leaving is normal as "everyone can be replaced". The Finance and Corporate Management are stepping on the employees neck and trying to squeeze every ounce of resource to the company's benefit.

    Well the benefits are terrible. Even our contractors are insured at a greater price than we do. I was promoted, with no pay rise for the promotion. Given extra work, with no extra pay. And we are always given "friendly reminders" that we should be grateful for things and so-called benefits that was already written in the contract anyway (i.e bonus)

    Advice to Management

    Change the management.
