    The American organization with a Swedish working culture

    Consultant (Current Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    ProsThe Swedish working culture is friendly and creates an open athmosphere - you can ask anyonne about anything and always get a friendly welcome.

    ConsThe organization is hierarchical which makes it less flexible and the process of taking decisions may take longer than average.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Fast changing business -- can be quite exciting
    - Expanding globally into new business lines
    - Generally strong management team
    - Leverages new technology (though some is ancient)
    - Many of the world's largest and well known companies are customers
    - Generally good communications from management
    - Small enough that you get to know much of the company
    - NASDAQ name has huge brand recognition

    Cons- Corporate bureaucracy - unusually high for a company of this size (<4K staff)
    - Too much going on - frequent strategic confusion among management
    - Not enough tech resources supporting most business units
    - Long work hours - but fun if you are up for the challenge
    - Disorganized budget planning processes

    Advice to Senior Management- Focus on doing fewer things better
    - Improve marketing - bring back excitement of late-90s campaigns
    - Make additional investments in tech operations

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
