Pros

Good work life balance. Opportunity to work on products that impacts millions of customers.

Process oriented and management is not technical enough.

Advice to Management

Promote people with technical skills . Most of them are getting promoted just because of their communication skills.

    Pros

    Great local teams! Amazing proactiveness and willingness for cooperation on operational level in the region. Great training opportunities! Compensation is above average.

    Cons

    Higher level management in customer service does not put focus on cooperation with local business stakeholders. All the new programs are comming from US.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on business engagement. Support can be more effective if cooperates with local business.

    Pros

    Intelligent co-workers; encouraged to innovate; good benefits, beautiful campus locations

    Cons

    They promote work-life balance but in words only. The employees who get recognized at all-hands meetings are those who worked 60 hour weeks and never took time off.

    Advice to Management

    Employees get burned out too soon when they have no life outside of work. If you are going to encourage work-life balance, you need to really mean it.
