Customer Service (Current Employee), Trevose, PAOctober 27, 2014
On a day to day basis I help our military members and their families find care in all Latin America. The hardest part of my job is having to advise a family member that there is no etiquette care available in their locaition.

In the 4 years I have worked for my company, I have learned so much. I had an oppurtunity to join the management internship – more... program, rank the highest in quality and so much more. – less

Abysmal - great staff, hopeless management
Account Manager (Former Employee), AsiaSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: learnt how not to run a company
Cons: dreadful shocking lack of communication by management - no support
Constantly banging your head against a brick wall - and getting no where. Lack of communication - am positive that is company directive as is just appalling. Dysfunctional, far too many chiefs who don't know their job, and the underlings work like Trojans. No training - no support, constantly have to battle for every inch, in the end I was just too – more... worn down and so tired. The mental strain and headaches I was getting - not worth working yourself into a grave for. Just too hard constantly having to battle for every little thing. Poor resources, no support, no training - but boy oh boy - is their criticism quick sharp & swift. Show initiative and drive and you'll soon be out the door. What ever you do, don't outshine management.
What I learned - how some people are good at bluffing their way into good jobs and making themselves appear important
Co-workers - great, but high staff turn over. So many people dissatisfied and fed up
Hardest part of the job - was trying to stay positive.
Most enjoyable part of the job - resigning. Life is far too short to begrudge and detest having to go into work every day with such regret. – less

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
