    Pros

    Pay & benefits are better than anything in the area. Work environment is professional.

    Cons

    Very uptight "goody goody" attitude from the company as a whole. Management between sections of the company struggles with communication.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing Salesforce and force people to start using it more.

    Non-Danish employees are 2nd class citizens. No holidays or benefits away from US. Often expected to work 10 or more weeks at a time off site.

    Cultivate some integrity.

    Pros

    For high performers, there are and will be good opportunities for advancement and development. It seems that reorganizations both present opportunities for the high performers and risk for under-performers. Overall the company keeps moving forward with innovative business practices, a forward-looking and sustainable vision, and a focus on results.

    Cons

    A complex matrix environment is tough to navigate for newcomers, but this is par for the course for multinationals. The top-down decisions about reorganization can seem concerning, but also create opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to communicate frequently to employees of all levels to ensure continued motivation in times of economic uncertainty.

    Pros

    Initially, the company held promise, lots of good promises, lots of training.

    Cons

    No plan, slow response to - everything. Nobody seems to care about quality, the customer is always wrong, no sense of urgency at all to accomplish any project. And- if a project becomes delinquent- the management in Denmark sweeps out the US managers and hires more almost immediately. This has been an often repeated process. Hire-fire-hire-fire.

    Advice to Management

    Take a business class at the local community college.
