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

    Pros

    Company has several locations across the world - Travel is the best Pro. Compensation before the downturn of the industry was comparable. Overall not a bad place to work

    Cons

    Industry in turmoil, Absolutely no professionalism in this company. Expect you to follow blindly and not ask questions, poor training with several people in place due to convenience instead of qualification.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent in your actions regarding decisions that affect employees. Hold local management accountable for their transgressions towards employees and set higher standard of professionalism.
