    Carreer perspectives = zero, Benefits = 0, Managers just push/explore you until you break or complain, they just don't care about you as a person! They don't know how to plan and only think about themselves!

    Advice to Management

    Adjust to the 21st Century, learn to plan, to say no,to recognize and reward!

    Pros

    There are some interesting activites and challenges in some areas inside the group, but the options are limited.

    Cons

    The processes, in general, are so heavy and outdated that don't allow for much creativity and innovation. The group is also very bad when it comes to HR management - there is hardly a career evolution, or wage evolution for that matter, and there is absolutely no tailored HR management.

    Advice to Management

    People are the best asset in PT, focus on them - know them and value them, fairly.
