    Pros

    Estable, solid and integral company.

    Cons

    At least In my country, there is no chances of getting promoted or getting any paid formación to develope our career. In part is a fault from the economic system, but also from the old fashioned management and the lack of innovation in the work model.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your talents, pay better salaries and empower your workteams.

  2. Good pay but there was lots of ambiguity in my role on the SAP Project.

    Pros

    Ethics and values, stable, profitable, good benefits, 401(k) match, global, stature within the industry

    Cons

    Company politics, sink or swim training (which I personally like, good for a person that likes to be self-directed), over-corrects whenever issues come up.

    Advice to Management

    Over the years it has felt like the way to advance has moved from performance based to being tied to who you know. Those that have tenure and a senior leader invested in them will do well.

    Pros

    Wonderful corporate climate. Strong values and ethics, this company does invest in human talent.
    There is room to grow professionally, and there is a very well defined system to do so. I didn't experience, (or notice), any kind of discrimination or injustice. Health Insurance is great. Not big spenders, but they are not stingy regarding travel expenses or security issues. Safety comes first.

    Cons

    I noticed that many people were doing the work of two or three roles by themselves, (including myself). The wages are not the best in the market, and sometimes you can get lost in the size of this huge company.
