Pros: probably ok to gain experience before moving on careerwise
Cons: don't work for them if you want job security
I had a very stable and lengthy career in materials testing until they came along and bought out my previous employer.Though we were all assured that our jobs would be safe within a month some of my former colleagues were 'let go' and replaced by managers from another ESG office.My own role was made redundant-simply shifted to another ESG site on cost grounds..though the same efficiency could have been achieved by sending more work to my site.
I think it would be accurate to say that I was blackmailed into taking demotion and less pay under threat of redundancy,so I reluctantly had to accept or become jobless.
Then they made two thirds of the staff redundant including myself and some very experienced guys less than a year later by closing the whole materials test facility.
Nothing any manager ever said to you should be regarded as the truth.
