    I have been working at Norsk Hydro

    Pros

    It is an opportunity to work for a global company with strong values. It is an industry owner that builds the organization on the foundation of safety for the employees.

    Cons

    Up side is there is continual change within the organization and leadership. This forces the focus to be more short term, rather than long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more into long term investment and look for stable growth.

    I worked at Norsk Hydro

    Pros

    Fantastic team spirit and office atmosphere. The fact that every day at Hydro I looked forward to going to work.

    Cons

    Even though there are no huge cons, more feedback and rotation possibilities would be a place for Norsk Hydro to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Earlier application dates for internships and full-time positions. To be present at the best Universities and hire locally and internationally.
