    Pros

    LG provides competitive slaries and benefits, there are opportunities for training and leadership assignments. Work is interesting, the company expands its activities contuniously and there are lots of M&A activities. there are many events during the year where colleagues can come together and do fun things together. (summer and Christmas parties, new year's receptions etc.)

    Cons

    The company's increasing size makes communication between departments less efficient, there is space for potential improvement regarding people managemement, the work culture is a bit controlling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less controlling, more focus on people management and soft skills, improve communication channels.
