    Pros

    Good benefits, multiple opportunities for employees to learn outside of their main jobs, collaboration and team work are encouraged. I had freedom to chose the working hours and to some extend my location, as long as I did a good job my managers did not care where I worked from and when I did my job. Great place for women as the management encourages gender balance in senior roles. Strong focus on diversity. Good communication in general

    Cons

    The company went through a huge amount of change, there was little stability in people's roles, which sometimes encourages short-term thinking. Pressure can be very high in sales roles. Many roles overlap in responsibilities, so there are always multiple stakeholders and interested parties to manage

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more focus on key priorities and longer term thinking
