I have been working at International SOS full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Job satisfaction, if management lets you support them instead of telling you what to do.
It's an exciting company to work for, with a lot of changes all the time and brilliant career prospects if you work hard and senior management recognise that.

Cons

High pressure with little thought about the employees, even though the company prides itself in looking after their employees.

Advice to Management

Better staff involvement and long term planning.

    I worked at International SOS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment, state of the art facilities, dedicated and skilled staffs, great healthcare benefits, access to 24 hours emergency clinic. I really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Low pay but great benefits especially for parents, management needs to put more values on human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pays especially for low medical staffs (nurses, medics). Continue appreciating & acknowledging the best staffs will increase morale and loyalty.

    I have been working at International SOS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Stepping stone for some UK experience
    - Operates in many countries and so opportunities for travel
    - Diverse culture
    - offers work permits

    Cons

    Many in Senior Management lack people management skills and unable to guide new joiners in a complex business environment;
    Rigid managament, lack ability to dicuss new approaches or new ideas,
    Lots of gossiping, back biting and internal politics, unhealth and causes stress
    New employees are not integrated well and senior employees lack the ability to lead, direct and share the workload, leaving one absolutely frustrated and depressed;
    Pathetic salaries, long working hours and lack of appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    THE CEO needs to conduct a 360 degree review for his senior staff and send them for some people management training courses AND try to interact more with people at all level to ensure everyone all is well.
