    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 Management

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

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