    Pros

    It's a company with a global presence and renown, there is experience and innovation happening, too bad it is being stiffled by the pressure on the entire industry. There are opportunities for growth if you are individually driven. Great people make up the office culture

    Cons

    Becoming very beaurocratic, despite drive in innovation, some tools do not seem to respond to client needs, no compensation for going the extra mile, significant pressure on profit leading to some internal frustration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge, value, respect and reward the extra mile. Listen for suggestions, take part in implementation - it starts from the top

    Current Employee - Researcher

    Pros

    Global company with offices in almost all countries. Possibility for international assignments exist if one knows the right people. Ability to travel the world if one is is a senior position.

    Cons

    Unhealthy culture where one is set up for failure and not success. This greatly inhibits career planning and progression. Insecure leaders make for a culture that is toxic for individual engagement and company growth.
