    Pros

    The salary is respectable as are many of the individuals I work with. My subordinates take their jobs seriously and work extremely hard to meet the needs of the business and customers as well as the sometimes unrealistic demands of upper management. It is a pleasure to work with such dedicated people. I also see people taking international work trips to Spain and Scotland for a week or two at a time - giving them an international exposure.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to be disconnected from what is happening in the trenches. Many of the corporate office areas give the impression of being dysfunctional. I also experience, and witness, little work-life balance. There appears to be an understanding that the parent company does not trust the US companies which means budget cuts and an unwillingness to hire enough people to replace retiring (and fleeing) individuals. In certain areas there is high turnover and stress. Unfortunately the cons outweigh the pros.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for area. Not sure that I am able to say much else positive at this time. This used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Constantly asked to do more with less. Poor business planning not focused on building a long term business, employees are only a number, no regard for work/life balance. Most open high level positions will be filled by Spanish employees from the parent company.

    Advice to Management

    If you want this company to do well think beyond the next quarter and cash flow. Skilled workers in this industry are a resource.
