    Pros

    Global, multinational company, with a real scope for a promotion, excellent salary and benefits package, adult culture (no micromanaging, flexible working hours).

    Cons

    Office politics - but it's a large company so that can happen. It's best not to participate in a hearsay

    Advice to Management

    Company with good leaders, not much advice, keep up a good work

  6. A company built on success in the 80s, with most of the same people still around....until now

    Internal processes and compliance levels can slow down projects and impact on customer facing time.

    Keep up the momentum but really think about process, compliance and IT..... It's slowing us down.
