“Expect the best and the worst”

You get brilliant opportunities if you are interested. They don't keep you on low levels and allow you to work your way up if you are good. The pay is good and you get benefits packages you can only be grateful for. If you are lucky, you'll get a manager who knows what he/she is doing and who can keep a cool head and take things into their hands when needed.

If you are unlucky, the managers have no idea what they are doing and will let you and others down. Even at the highest levels of management where you would expect efficiency and knowledge, you can be disappointed.

Lots of opportunities to live and learn and to go up the ladder

“Company policies unefficient”

Everyone is very nice and there's, overall, a good working atmosphere. If you resign yourself to the fact that there's no-one on higher levels of management to help you out, you can fare pretty well. The pay and the benefits package are good so that's a good incentive to put up with a lot.

The management doesn't have the skills and the knowledge to be able to support the staff. Even though they are nice, there are times when you just can't get any help. There's too much red tape and that sometimes keep you from getting things done. Training should be made compulsory and the company could become much more efficient. Moreover, you sometimes feel the job is not stable and you can get insecure.

It takes a lot to make things change and you can't even be sure they will.

“Hardly an enjoyable experience”

The pay is good, the benefits package even better and that is about it. Oh, and the staff is friendly even though incompetent.

Management is under-trained, quite useless at dealing with issues and/or findind solutions. Trouble-shooting has never been heard of and everyone tends to be left to their own devices. The working conditions leave a lot to be desired and the company has nothing to be proud of. They need to start over again and train people, deal with uselessness and listen to constructive ideas.

No-one seem to know what's going on.
