No Room for growth

This company does not present high prospects of personal growth. The constant restructuring makes one feel like there is no job security. The salary and benefits are very good. the hardest part of the job was penetrating old cultures and changing them the most enjoyable was always doing new things.

Pros

lateral growth

Cons

far from towns

One Day at the office

Usually arrive early and the first at the office, start to work through emails, then prepare for the day's meetings. Work on short/ medium/ long term projects then end the day by working through mails to ensure all the tasks are addressed.

Pros

Starting early you get more done

Cons

Good remuneration and fun place to work at

I didn't like being on contract for the whole period, it didn't give me a sense of security and indeed it ended. Otherwise I worked under amazing management Getting safety bonuses etc. made me feel appreciated. The presence of employee wellness programmes meant that the company acknowledged that employees are human and the Organisation cares.

Cons
