Good cross-departmental and cross-functional exposure

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsExcellent benefits, competitive salary, convenient location, opportunities to grow and learn within your role, competitive Bonus program. Good exposure across functions and groups with other staff of your same level.

ConsCurrent restructuring has led to a preference of hiring from outside the company instead of promoting from within. Very hierarchical in structure, lots of focus on what your title is rather than respect for your knowledge or experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
