    Interesting work soured by incompetent HR and a management that seems to strive to make employees feel worthless/pawns.

    Bullying management

    Advice to Management

    Live you to your values with open and honest communication
    Stop trying to screw employees
    Management by screaming at your employees does not work.

    Pros

    Fantastic team to work with, Constant Workload that varies, Large variety of people and experiences to be had, Truly Global reach and distribution

    Cons

    Decisions are not communicated clearly or in a timely manner, Perception of a very big communication gap from the top to the bottom despite the company working hard to create the impression that there is not, Too many decisions are taken with the benefits to Norway being the main thought process and not much thought being given to other regions.

    Advice to Management

    Align regions and work processes so there is less worldwide communication and time lost waiting for people in other time zones to take action or make decisions. Be more open with employees and contractors about what is happening, and involve them more.

  3. Good Company to work for with good opportunities
