Pros

+Usually easy
+Flexible work environment
+Internally promoted
+Salary review each year with normal raises (3-5%)

Cons

+There is no overtime and the compensation for time over 40hrs is very poor
+Raises are small. Normally 3-5%. You have to be a genius to get a 5% or work very hard. Not worth it
+Recognition in this company is handed out like parents encouraging their children's horrible drawings. People who deserve recognition normally don't get it at all or alone. Other useless people join in the recognition
+HR processes and technologies (Time Entry/Calendar Entry/Email/Etc.) are VERY poor. We use Lotus Notes for email for God's sake. Enough said.

Advice to Management

Have more clearly defined procedures and processes. The rules change on a monthly basis and there is too much inconsistency.

    Pros

    It has a very good balance between work and life. And good oportunnities to increment your acknowledge and skills.

    Cons

    The company is always changing, it can be good some times but it is really hard to built a career in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in people, help them to grow, act as a guide. And be more open to communicate. Communication is not so good in the company.
