    I have been working at Prysmian Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very big, prestigious organization that has built a great brand that services many industries. This gives you the opportunity to pursue career paths that participate in a large variety of applications; i.e. aerospace, defense, wireless communications, data and power transmission, etc. etc. etc.

    Management is very accessible and open to discuss anything from career path recommendations to last weekend's USC game. Makes for a pretty open environment.

    The company is working hard to become a more progressive organization, implementing a lot of new programs and benefits to make the overall working environment more enjoyable.

    The people are great. There are a lot of weekend sports organized and also some happy hours from time-to-time. It's nice to work with people you like.

    Compensation and benefits are in-line with what you would expect from a large company like this.

    Cons

    It is a lean organization which can make things challenging at times. Also, because of this we sometimes fail to train people as well as we should.

    Communication across the organization could always be better. But I guess this is something that all large companies deal with.

    We have a ton of experience in management (good thing) but we need to find new ways of transferring that knowledge to the younger employees who will be the future leaders of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Don't settle for what works and continue pushing the progressive culture.

    Pros

    Enjoy the companies we call on and products we sell. Current environment is fast paced and never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Just like ever other company you have to know the politics internally to grow and succeed. Wish the bonus plan was more than just once a year.

    I worked at Prysmian Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    *Unethical management and accounting processes.
    *Company allows harassment and protects management at all cost.
    *High turnover.
    *Usually one to 2 people per area overworked, while others lay back and show no pride in what they do. Most are careless and cause others additional and unnecessary work.
    *No training - management picks and chooses who to train.
    *Demoralizing management - would much rather talk down to people instead of lifting them up and motivating them.
    *No department meetings. Everyone marches to their own tune.

    Advice to Management

    *Monitor reporting and management more.
    *Take the employees more seriously instead of having the attitude that "management is always right".
    *Don't make promises/offers you can't keep.
    *Don't keep the attitude, "If it's not in writing, you have no proof or leg to stand on".
    *Offer training to new employees.
    *Treat employees with respect and value their input as well as their contribution to the company.
