    Pros

    It is an MNC, you get to learn a lot if you are keen and willing to get your hands dirty (hands-on) within your area and outside your field.

    Cons

    Not everybody treated the same way and very color based, this is very visible across the whole organisation. Too heavy at the top and middle levels and very weak at the bottom. Not enough working bees and lots of big talkers. Unreasonable deadlines and feels like racing with time. Not very family oriented and no work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Equal opportunity and remunation regardless of race, nationality and background.

    I worked at International SOS full-time

    Pros

    Some good people working there.

    Cons

    This company is basically rotten to the core. They hire and fire people with abandon, absolutely every decision needs to be sanctioned by top management, and there is an absolute culture of fear. It claims to be "entrepreneurial" but entrepreneurs put faith in the people around them, allow them to take risks and empower them to deliver.

    In addition, the company does nothing to promote corporate social responsibility or community initiatives, and it's financial structure and tax compliance is secretive at best. Most of what ISOS does is geared towards short term profitability - nobody knows the strategy and nobody knows the performance other than vague headlines about turnover and the number if people it employs.

    Advice to Management

    You want to create a massive MNC but you embrace none of the values of the most admired companies in the world - respect for your staff, non discrimination, compliance, a social ethos to doing business, modern systems and ways of looking at the world. Time to back away and leave it to true entrepreneurs.
