Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsExcellent value system (ethical, professional)
Offers a very diverse set of opportunities to develop one's career in the technology sector in different domains, and across continents
Self-empowerment - employees are actively encouraged to take initiative and drive change

ConsComplex, matrix structure makes it diffiult to navigate within the company

Execute as one team
Move faster on defining and communicating the company strategy to our customers and our employees
Focus less on today's stock price, and more on building sustainable value through new product and service offerings
