Very, very weak management. Great engineers but terrible managers. Completely different skill set, and most managers there are out of their depth. Badly in need of management training.
Not all lower management fault though, as the regional strategy and directives coming from up on high were a joke. Completely disconnected from reality.
Dangerous place to work in too, as I saw a lot of highly "questionable" attitudes taken towards certain employees. On paper they profess themselves to be impeccable.
Culture is one of intimidation. Saw many colleagues "heavily encouraged" to travel to dangerous locations to keep utilisation high. Very much "the boy's club" mentality. Was always amused at the exact same dress sense all the managers had.
Unclear deliverables, poor pay and very high workload. Highly competitive environment with little or no collaboration.
Not personally recommended as life is too short. Some people may like that environment though. Each to his/her own.
Travel to atypical locations. Get free immunization jabs and malaria pills.
No direction, training, clear deliverables. Management structure is non existent.
