    Pros

    Great people, exciting working with people from so many other countries ....

    Cons

    Work-Life-Balance is a Joke! Salary is not-not-not competitive and 50+ hours/week is an expected norm. Oh, and if you can work from home, expect your job to be outsourced ---

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On-shore before it's too late

    Pros

    Looks good on your CV

    Cons

    Pay rises and almost non-existent - no inflation related increases, ever.
    PBC process (enormously bureaucratic performance review process) pits employees against each other - 10 to 15% or all employees will be designated as under performing every year no matter how hard everyone works. This is supposed to drive high performance but actually results in stressed employees and low morale across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch PBC and get off your employees' backs. You have hired talented and motivated people - start trusting them to deliver and they will!
