    Pros

    Colleagues were nice, working hours were reasonable, food in canteen was cheap and good, there were a lot of benefits

    The pay was lower than many of its competitors, employed too many interns with no intention to convert them to full-time staff

    Increase the pay to attract and retain top talents, make the workplace more international
