      I can't think of any bad sides about it. It is all positive. I really enjoy working there. But the only thing I can think of is that no one will look over your shoulder. You have to be disciplined to do your work

      Pros

      Only offers visibility. Having this company on your résumé can be beneficial to your career, but the company in itself is extremely corrupted. Hiring process to evaluation to salary increase, you must be part of a network of very questionable minds to be paid decently and not feel threatened to lose your job.

      Cons

      They don’t like promoting people dedicated to their jobs. Lots of internal battles for power, privileges. Only hires people they know or close relatives. Experienced people are not welcome there. Incompetency is a trademark.
