Interesting and challenging place to work
Assistant Coordinator (Former Employee), Ciudad de México, DIFApril 13, 2013
The most difficult to live all days of the week was the traffic for moving to their offices, per day from arriving to the office and leaving to home was about 2 hours 30 minutes so it makes stressful because too much traffic, it doesnt matter on fridays they finished the journey early at 13:00 hours.

Regarding the goals were such as interesting because, – more... there were many opportunity areas to work in, as the customer service and giving follow up to many protocols, specially learnig how to attend new patients, people asking for information about our products and learn how to perfectly know to which person send calls, e-mails, and information, was really nice and enjoyable to know it is a noble and satisfactory company because they work to save lifes or to improve the quality of life of person with delicate health problems such as cancer or osteoporosis..

The enviroment and the co-workers were nice people, it was young people team with new ideas so it makes every day journey a good place to work. – less
