    Very good company to work for, they have their hands in business all over the world.

    There can be communication issues between mid-management and executive management. Regional issues. But, nevertheless, nothing terrible.

    Create a better incentive culture rewarding people that really put in an effort
    For the rest keep up things as they are going. Great international company.
