    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company has very good benefits. It is a fast paced challenging environment that forces you to be at the top of your game.

    Cons

    Top level management in the N. American region do not value long term experienced employees and routinely "clean house" to lower costs. If you are an American the opportunities for advancement are limited as relocation outside the US is mandatory for advancement. The company runs extra lean and there is poor life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Value your experienced employees. It's good to bring in fresh, young blood to get new ides, but a lot of time is wasted on inexperienced handling of projects and young employees with no people skills.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Promotions come fast. Input is valued at an early level.

    Cons

    Contentious environment. Cross functionals play the blame game. Higher-ups are from global office. Work life balance is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better and talent might not burn out
