Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Budapest (Hungary)
Former Employee - Systems Analyst in Budapest (Hungary)
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

-truly global environment
-ability to travel
-ability to learn and understand different cultures in work
-carrier development opportunities towards mgmt positions
-good compensation package, paid overtime hours

If you are a starter, with little or no work experience, with lower educational background, but interested in moving up the ladder, energetic in social settings, "politically correct", then this company is for you.

Cons

-disappointing overall level of professional IT knowledge (many IT analysts doesnt even have an IT degree!!)
-little or no opportunities for professional development
-low employee morale at the bottom level (lots of starters)
-open office is noisy in certain countries
-all new employees are treated as starters

If you are a trained professional, with many years of work experience at different organizations, have a strong educational background, prefer to act rather than talk, strive on proffessional development, then this company is not for you.

Advice to Management

Forget moving all jobs in-house from contractors and third parties. Keeping the most professional staff is not a strength of your organization.
