    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ECG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Large scale projects.
    *Good for starters to gain fast production experience (not technical experience).
    *Clean and nice workplace (Smart village branch).

    Cons

    *This company relies on forcing employees to work overtime for free.

    *Dirty unhealthy workplace (Nasr city branch)

    *Due to poor management decisions and lack of technical knowledge you can rework the project over and over with a lot of overtime for free and have very poor quality products and sometimes unsafe design.

    *You can work until 2:00 am and come again at 10 am and you will be having penalties for being late! with no bonus or any gratitude from the management.

    *If you had a problem and asked your management to escalate ,you can easily find him saying that the ceo shouted at him so he couldn't solve it !!

    *They just don't care if you got phd from MIT with 90% efficiency or a mediocre engineer with efficiency of 40% ,you are being judged in terms of your look ,personality and working hours.

    Advice to Management

    This company once was one of the best in terms of quality and experience. but your strategy would definitely lead to the failure of this company and it's reputation has already began to fall. You have to fix this mess before it's late.
