    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you're starting your carer this was like working in a big four, as the environment is very business oriented and with continuous internal opportunities to develop your carer in other countries and or departments.

    Cons

    Sometimes it might be difficult to understand the power tensions that might make you move forward inside the organisation, but just be nice and open minded as in any other company!

    Advice to Management

    This is a boss oriented company, where you better please the all mighty boss if you want to move on the success ladder!
