Great people that have a wealth of knowledge. Clear set of values. Clear strategy that is building momentum. Many global opportunities available for individuals.
Very few people appreciate the goals & challenges of colleagues in other business units/ markets. There have been too many structural changes in recent times, although it appears that the frequency of significant change is reducing.

Found through a head hunter and had a pre-screening interview with them, which then moved onto a phone interview with the person that I would be working for. After that had 1 face to face interview with my boss and another team member.
