Pros

Medium pay, but very short hours and managers are very flexible when it comes to holidays or simply long weekends. All business travel times outside of working hours is paid as extra time.
The environment at work is very nice and friendly...Flowers, cakes, waffles, yoga, good gym...

Cons

A lot of old employees - result, very slow pace business environment, most of them, unfortunately, simply wait to retire and get that super pension. No challenge in daily activities. When promoting to new or expatriate positions managers are somewhat favourable to norwegians - which is an understandable issue, but when they hire international people they emphasize that opportunities are equal. Norwegian language recently became an issue, this is no longer real international company - you are told very straightforward that they want you to speak Norwegian - no proper training is provided though. And it requires some efforts to reach some level of proficiency in it...and you are really not sure what to do with it later on in your life...unless you plan to relocate to a country of "perma" autumn/winter...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of cutting costs on fruits try to stimulate people to save money for the company and not always being contractor friendly...it is harder to do but will save you much more
