    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Employees are generally very hard working.
    Documentations are well organized.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is the worse issue. And sadly it is not because we have too much work to do. There are too much politics to drag everyone down unnecessarily.

    Managers lack of basic managing skills and only promoted because .. well they are in the tribe(;-

    Many managers are very dishonest. Like a previous review said, they are so afraid to loose their 'kingdom', they do everything to blame on others and make themselves look good. This often involves lies.

    Dishonesty produces very aggressive working environment.

    Advice to Management

    SEND YOUR MANAGERS TO TRAINING.
