    Pros

    It is a good company to start your career in. you will be exposed to lots of learning experience and a diverse work place. there is a good proximity between top management and middle managers. it is a very friendly place

    Cons

    salaries are low compared to any other multinational in Egypt. There are lots of office politics and allies. you will often find favorites in every department and usually those favorites will be exposed to more opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I think you should put of focus on personal growth and equality. it is really sad to find such a great companies with such bad office politics.

    Pros

    You can be promoted very quickly. We have seen secretaries promoted to entry level positions in marketing, supply chain, and sales in less than six months. But that is also a possible sign of finding a lack of qualified applicants from outside.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. The company has the lowest score for employee satisfaction feedback surveys annually. Managers and directors have no long term vision or experience when put into their positions. It is a mess and creates a bad environment for growth, so you end up looking for other opportunities.

  7. Ok, but poor management team

    Need to balance the experience with youth. Improve IT systems.
