    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at EPO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very high salary. Manageable working level. Good balance with family life. Long vacations. Predictable working rhythm.
    There is a great pride in what we do, and we are committed to excellence. Management is generally competent and nepotism is almost non existent.

    Cons

    Boring, very boring and repetitive job. Almost not career propspects. You'll most likely retire doing the same as in your 30s.

    Advice to Management

    In principle management is doing fine. The work is what it is and not much can be done of it.
