    Pros

    Everyone is willing to push ahead to achieve the goals. A can do mentality for large projects. Possibility to relocate to many countries.

    Cons

    High workload, ethos of work all out can be draining. Not as family friendly in some regions work life balance needs to be managed by individuals or you can work too much.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how your employees can get a better balance of work and home life.

    Pros

    I worked briefly on projects within the Business Intelligence system. The system is well set up, with a lot of attention paid to technical coherence and system stability. It's very clear what the constraints are within which development takes place in this system. I was a contractor, but some permanent colleagues were working on innovative projects including integrating of map data.

    Cons

    The flipside of the level of attention paid to system stability and release process is invevitably that the processes could sometimes feel a bit burdensome. This is still preferable to an uncontrolled environment with constant firefighting and chaos. There were some problems involving team members located in far-distant timezones, which sometimes made communication difficult. The hours of work (8-4) are not my favourites hours of the day!

    Pros

    Each project has its own challenges which is good if you like challenges.
    Possibilities to grow and develop within the company

    Cons

    No work life balance due to long rotations and short leave.
    This will eventually brake up especially if you have a family.
