No opinion of CEO

Pros

* International company
* Very competitive salary
* Great benefits (health insurance for the whole family, free/cheap food, 13th & 14th month, ...)
* Family oriented (insurance, company family events, ...)
* Great people
* Great travelling opportunities (depends on your position though)
* Good work/life balance
* For techs & lab: you get to work with the latest & greatest tools

Cons

* Dress code (more strict if you're male ...)
* Very traditional/conservative corporate culture
* Management is all about politics (but hey, where isn't it...)
* Very hard to get promoted based solely on merit... you need a university degree to get over a certain level

Advice to Management

Great job @ leading the company in general, but lose the dress code for non-customer facing positions, do something about the excessive politics games going on at the management level & promote people based on accomplishments in the company, not in academics!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Family owned company!

    The major owner is an incredible individual!

    Cons

    Foreign management in USA has no idea how to treat employees and "always" feel they know best!

    Senior management has an extreme case of "do as I say, not as I do."

    Horrible HR Department and HR Management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional USA Managers and let them manage the company!

    I worked at Puratos full-time

    Pros

    Conditions salariales avantageuses, bonne ambiance, culture d'entreprise. Bonne culture RH, l'employé est bien suivi. Pas mal de facilités pour évoluer dans la société.

    Cons

    Situation géographique catastrophique, pas de transports en commun et trop de trafic. La boîte est trop politisée, si on a le malheur d'aller contre l'avis de certains dirigeants on peut se retrouver à la rue rapidement. Beaucoup de beau parleurs mais incompétents dans la direction, incapables de prendre de décisions. Beaucoup de talents on été perdus de cette façon.

    Advice to Management

    Ecoutez ce que l'employé à a dire. On veut faire beaucoup d'efforts pour réduire le turnover du staff mais il faut commencer par écouter le staff.
