      Great company to get experience but workload too high and pay way too low

      Pros

      Worked on some great projects and got great experience.

      Cons

      Way too much expected from the engineers with very little appreciation given for this just expected to do everything. Very difficult to get more money when you accept such a low salary as they offer to new graduates. Frankly ridiculous what they offer to the young graduates. Below minimum wage for the hours you work. Bad recruitment. Employing people to basically walk around doing nothing while the engineers run around doing everything. Good company to have on your C.V but that's really it. The attitude is you should be proud to work for such a big company. Prestige doesn't pay the bills unfortunately. Company I think has lost its way in the last few years as I'm not the only one who has left and there will be plenty more to come. Hours too long with no work life balance and expected to do Saturdays on top too. Way more money elsewhere with more respect and less stress.
