    Safety oriented

    Lack of development plan

    Weak HR department
    Promotions only reachable to US and Europe employees
    focused on cost reductions

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the focus on cost reductions and create a more motivating career development plan for employees. Some employees loose passion for their work due to a lack a vision from top management

    Pros

    The company is very profitable and stable. Many people there have been there for years and turn over seemed to be pretty low.

    Cons

    Overall the company is very inflexible in terms of time and working from home. In addition only starting wih two weeks vacation (at a senior level role) made it very hard to have the type of work life balance I was used to at previous companies. Managers seems really hung up on working "shifts." In IT, it is usually expected that you work weekends and evenings if there are problems, so this old school mind set did not appeal to me.

    Also, the VP's very openly flaunted their wealth and would not even say hello to normal office workers. They seemed to spend most of their time on the golf course on the company's dollar rather than actually working and not acknowledging the people who actually enabled their lavish lifestyle seemed like a slap in the face.

    Advice to Management

    Allow flexibility, tone down the 1980's culture of executives flaunting their wealth in front of people who are probably livig pay check to pay check.

    Pros

    Stable company with some good processes in place. Good people throughout the organization. Career development is very possible and dependent on your effort. If you get your manager on board you can accomplish a lot. Mid and lower level employees are collaborative and helpful.

    Cons

    Below average pay. Manufacturing mindset to everything. Lack of diversity at senior levels. No confidence in senior management. Bottom line focus only.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so internally focused and listen to your customers. Really value your employees. Hire good people and let them do their jobs. Stop micromanaging. Pay your people an average wage.

    Pros

    Work culture is very good. Managers are friendly with staff and there's a lot of training. Company is growing systematically, sustaining annual increase for performing employees. Also has good benefits.

    Cons

    Compensation is claimed to be competitive though I'm quite dubious. Has its share of power-tripping managers but I guess every workplace has at least one.

    Advice to Management

    Great job on handling and motivating people. Keep it up!
