Freedom to work independently

Engineers own their work, with collaboration expected and no micromanagement.

What I like about the company

Management is very good, and the engineering department frequently did little things like lunch or post-lunch dessert (often celebrating something like someone's birthday or new home) to make life better.

What I dislike about the company

Management does not know what they are doing and you have to be from South America and have tendency to keep your nose brown to advance

Suggestions for improvement

  • The rotation of personnel is very high, there are several laid offs every certain period of time (when the financial results reflect a loss in the stock price); then it comes a period of new hires, and then laid offs again. It's like a cycle. Employees can not feel stable in that kind of environment.
  • The Executive Team should re-evaluate the company's strategy to avoid changes in the personnel, it's key to keep experienced personnel and team who have knowledge of the company's operations.

What I like about the company

Nice environment and diversity of cultures

What I dislike about the company

The Company does limited opportunity to grow as professional, lack of formal trainings have been established.
