Pros: 35 hours of work a week (better than most companies around)
Cons: no investment in people
Our former company was doing great, good growth, good business, and we were getting rewarded for it, provided with the best tools to do our job, and a substantial bonus (for everybody in the company).
We were obviously doing too good, and got bought by IHS.
Now, we're asked to do the same job, with less time, bureaucratic red tapes, with no investment – more... in proper technologies, with no budget for training, no more team building. All the money the company is making will be given to the high managers as bonuses or used to buy some more companies. As well as you can perform in your job, you won't get rewarded by a good pay rise or a bonus. At least, that's how it is in my department.
However it's a bit like a lottery: it looks like it varies a lot depending on the department and the managers you're working for. – less
