    I have been working at FLSmidth|FLSmidth S.A. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Cannot find any. The series of cuts over last year has destroyed moral and created uncertainty so that top class people who were not made redundant have left. How the hell can we support such a wide range of technology if the experienced support team have been made redundant or have left.

    Cons

    No communication on long term strategy .. Poorly managed. Brutal in treatment of long term employees
