    I worked at International SOS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great culture that is very welcoming from day 1. They make you feel as if you were always a part of the team and are always willing to help. People were always willing to answer any questions that you may have had regarding a task related to a project you may have been working on. Training programs are in-depth and you learn so much from them.

    Cons

    They didn't really like if you went overtime at all, only if it's 1 or 2 hours then it's fine. Depending on the project, I think that there needs to be more trust put into the employees if they believe that work needs to be done. If overtime is needed for it, then by all means get it done no matter what!

    I worked at International SOS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. Pride in the mission of the organization. 2. A lot of wonderful people. 3. Terrific Learning & Development 4. Prefer to promote from within, so if you start out entry level or in a role with previous experience and you work hard and prove yourself, you can rise in the ranks.

    Cons

    1. Way too much pettiness and a lot of games: the blame game, favoritisms, etc. 2. You HAVE to watch your back and get everything in writing (email) and then save it all. There is not much accountability. 3. It can be a lot like high school with the talking behind your back and being fake to your face. I've even seen people file a complaint with HR just because they don't like someone.
