Pros

Free parking, microwave, fridge, toaster oven, coffee maker.
Performance bonus based on 2% of your annual salary or to the YES MEN. I was a 2%er.

Cons

Buying into the theory to become a "road warrior" vs. facing a layoff.
A work environment based on who can sit in "the office" the longest and analyze the shop.
A raise environment based on who can sit in "the office" the longest and analyze the shop.
Too many supertech's climbing over one another to board the private jet to fly to Italy for a boardroom meeting.

Advice to Management

Be a manager, not an advice columnist.

    Pros

    Free food in the cafeteria which is not in other offices around the world, although coffee is paid for by the employees.

    Cons

    The yelling and screaming within the office makes it very difficult to concentrate, people have mobile phones on the highest volume and conversations take place at full pitch. No one can talk to anyone without screaming. No social interaction and very little conversation takes place in the office. Demands from the CEO are ignored and made jokes of by some of the management. The constant pushing away of deadlines for actions, the ignorance of cultures non Italian and the push to create more jobs for Italian personnel is apparent in every change introduced.

    Advice to Management

    Stop, look, listen before the company crashes
