Pros

The benefits and PTO were the biggest asset of working for this company. The health insurance was very generous.

Cons

The Stock holders were the decision makers so if the company was not moving in the right direction, the stock holders decide the fate of the business.

Advice to Management

Be honest with the employees and if there is trouble ahead, ensure that they are well aware so they can make the appropriate arrangements.

    Pros

    Flexibility, independence, pay, contract, benefits, office.

    Cons

    Horrible management that doesn't care about employees. Line managers do everything to de-motivate you and make you understand that you are nothing and they are everything. Trying to attack employees to show to their managers that they are "capable of determing and solving the issues", "escalate" is the favourite word of our managers (so many examples when they tried to attack an employee who happenned to have written proof that there was no issue... never heard "sorry" from the managers).
    New line manager that has no communication skills, knows nothing about managing people and is very hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Please, organize at least one useful survey: a country-specific (and anonimous obviously) questionnaire for employees to rate their managers. There are so many unsaid problems, which we cannot obviously escalate if we want to keep our job.
