    Pros

    Innovative environment and great team

    Cons

    In my position I would love to move away form excel, unfortunately due to the fact that we do not have enough systematization/ atomization to support our daily work projects are difficult to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love management to invest more to support internal administration and activities. Unfortunately today this is not possible.
    Salaries need to be competitive with the market place

    Pros

    People are top notch in Professional Services! Very bright associates to work. Nice investment of training for all employees. Salary is good and competitive.

    Cons

    The approval process could be slightly quicker. The recruitment process was very long but that is also a good trait because they only pick higher quality individuals.
