Good money but horrible management.

You can expect higher than average compensation however there is a price to it - you work in tobacco company, producing deadly products which make people addicted and miserable regarding their health. Job itself is not interesting and many "wanna be" managers will go over and over again already good results to promote themselves, yes - themselves, not you who did the work. You will be only a number, insignificant and have to always say "yes sir" with smile. Try your best with some other company - You will have less money but you will be more happy and will not have to go through that management mumbo jumbo.

Great experience but glad I'm gone

The most important thing I can say about this organization is that your peers will be wonderful, intelligent, hard-working people and the senior management are essentially sociopaths. There's not really any chance of professional development or advancement because it's always "not a good time" due to constant reorganization and shifting priorities at the top. Great work-life balance because of Switzerland's strict labor laws. However, you're given the impression that more work/harder work leads to advancement, which is completely inaccurate.

Pros

Work-life balance

Cons

Senior management, no development/advancement

good place to work but with some important cons

Lots of different management styles in the company and not much of standard processes. Every employee may have a complete different experience when it comes to coaching, training, performance review and expectations, flex-work, etc. Stressful environment in general. "Yes, sir" culture makes non priorities to become urgencies in a second. Senior management micro-manages on projects and expects executors to review over and over results and plans. In a way it makes sense since the size of the business makes small changes to anything to deliver or risk millions of dollars. However, it doesnt help employees to develop decision making skills and it is hard to propose new and out of the box ideas.The company in general takes good care of employees, but it gives you the feeling that they focus only on the things that could be mentioned to the outside world (response to COVID, year'end celebration, etc.), and dont care much about day to day employees happiness and wellbeing.In addition, there is always something new being piloted, organizations are always changing. It is hard to feel stable at your position or on having job security.

Pros

Beautiful offices, Work-Life balance, Free coffee and sodas

Cons

Lack of job stability, Unnecesary stress, lack of career plan, completely subjective performance reviews

Great interiors motivating you to work

The place is pulsating with energy and there are people discussing work everyday. Time is money there and people work quite professionally. A typical day starts around 8:00, many people have breakfast while discussing. I always thought that I had good presentation skills, but my skills sharpened even more here with many impromptu meetings. The management follows matrix system and the workplace is quite relaxed. The best part about my job was that I learned many new techniques and worked on my own,the most difficult part was that with most projects being result oriented, exploration into basic science takes a little backseat then.

Nice compensation but very poor work culture

Nice company to work for if you are 40+ with 2 kids plus a non-working partner. WL balance is great, compensation as well, but the day-to-day is quite boring and disconnected from business reality.

Job does not match what was promissed

Job does not match what was promissed and I end up doing a job for which I am far overskilled. Management does not take accountablity for their mistake

Typical huge corporate environment and mind set. Lots of politics and not a clear direction. The company is going under a huge transformation and this bring pros and cons. International opportunities, good financial package. Networking and multicultural opportunities. Slow, old fashioned management.

Cons

Politics, old fashioned mind-set top to bottom decision

Great place to learn and get to know good people

PM is an amazing company - I've received countless growth opportunities and the company is very open when it comes to leaving the growth on the employee - unfortunately the C suite is a bit old and not willing to move at the pace they need to change. They're not walking the talk
