Great Company, Bad Culture
Operations (Former Employee), TrevoseJune 1, 2014
If the company extended its main message of "Human Touch" to its employees, it would be an amazing place to work. Offices abroad have better management, therefore, better retention and career progression which is not the case in the Philadelphia office.

Extremely professional organization with a very high focus on deliverables
BD Manager - Energy Mining & Infrastructure (Current Employee), Mumbai, MHMay 30, 2014
Pros: friendly team, good culture
Cons: management has less patience and has reluctance to adapt to local environment
- The company is a world leader in its space and faces scattered local competition.
- Challenges are country specific and depends on the local market very much
- The biggest drawback is that the company does not believe in having country specific strategies and generally as a rule of thumb applies the principles tried and tested in the more mature markets
- – more... Very bureaucratic in nature and follows systems and processes to the dot
- Very systematic in terms of compliance and is a more operations driven company rather than a sales driven company
- The company has a pool of great resources but feel there is a lot of stagnation in the company as there aren't enough growth opportunities internally
- Co-workers in the India team have been good and are all smart responsible individuals. – less

Engaging and challenging role
Prescription Nurse (Former Employee), Hammersmith, LondnApril 22, 2014
My typical day at work entailed going through email and telephone requests for medications and medical supplies for overseas based FCO officers and their families. I reported to the Nursing manager and I learned to manage own workload and to work under pressure and scrutiny due to the nature of the job. The hardest part of the job was coming across – more... situations where medications were ordered late, orders not received or specific medications not available - having to make sure that regardless of the problems the medication is received on time! The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a great team and having great support from direct manager. – less

Most Level Company to Work for.
Remote Site Paramedic/Liaison (Current Employee), Southeast AsiaAugust 12, 2013
Pros: rotations, pay, support, flexibility
Lets face it, if you are doing contract work, no matter what company, area, or job, it is all about what you are willing to put up with, and can you be compensated for it. Of the standard challenges to working remote, ISOS seems to handle them better than other companies, with the minimum of red tape and bureaucracy. Not to say that it doesnt exist, – more... but it is minimized.

We have good equipment, good communication, good support, and very competitive pay. If you dont want to get paid a ton to get shot at, it is a great company. There is a lot of flexible options for sites all over the world, and different rotational time requirements depending on sites.

It is the kind of company you can get in with, and stay with for as long as you choose, should you choose to. I am happy working for them, and get paid appropriately for what I do, and where I do it. There are more jobs and companies with higher pay, but also with much higher risks.

As with any company, you will work with a few people that make you question the HR dept, but again, it is a minimum compared to other companies. For the most part they hire qualified and competent people, and those that are not, usually find their own way to the door. I have never seen it as a reflection of the company, but rather the person being lacking in most cases. – less
