In the region, they are not too large therefore there's not enough available spots for new entries at the time

    Pros

    Lots of people with a real passion for the work AZ does - this surprised me.
    Good pay and benefits
    Good development opportunities

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement as the company is contracting
    A little bureaucratic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help people plan their careers better and provide more structure - good seasoned professionals will work there and move on if there is no opportunity, the "lifers" and those with less ambition will stay and that doesn't help a company respond to changing business needs flexibily
