Stressful and demanding job

The work demanded lot of hours to put in. Less team work and lot of stereotyped behavior from other colleagues. Had great benefits and market related salary structure. Only the aggressive and violent minded individuals make it to senior management. Lot of internal politics and less room for innovation.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Long hours and stressful

Productive , fun , educational and there is a room for one to grow with the company

Dedication is rewarded by means of internal promotion , one is granted an opportunity to grow with the company if they see that you have a potential and an ability, more over if they see that you are reliable and trustworthy.

Pros

Free tea, coffee and bread for tea break

Cons

If you work as a vte as i was, working hours are not a guarantee
