    Pros

    The company culture is right in the midst of significant change, but one consistent value is giving (well-deserving and proven) employees the opportunity to take on different roles and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Historically, it's been the lack of risk-taking and tough decision-making due to the "overly nice" culture. This is changing, though.

    Advice to Management

    The 4.0 values are the right ones. Please keep living and demonstrating them day in and day out.

    Pros

    Good salary, good people locally.

    Cons

    Product teams spread across globe- led to communication, timing & management issues.
    Virtual HR for remote offices with 200+ people not a good idea.
    Not enough innovation, just integration, integration, integration of acquired technology.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, not by powerpoint.
