Suggestions for improvement

  • I would review the programs I mentioned in the last question, and try to revise them to be more applicable in the real world, with the actual work environment that we have.

What I like about the company

It's a good place to work. My fellow employees are all very smart and are nice people too. The pay is decent and the benefits are pretty good. The work is interesting.

What I dislike about the company

The management tends to implement well-meaning programs for safety, etc., but the specifics of the programs are sometimes at odds with the realities of the work environment.

training is denied on the grounds that you'll never work on what you want to get training on.

Good compensation because everything is so expensive in the region.

Just like anywhere else, don't make a mistake or you are out
