Pros

People are generally very nice and there is a culture of flexible working.

Cons

Career progression is based on coffee talks rather than merit. There is no structured talent management approach and it is very hard to get to senior roles without spending lots of time network and pushing through.

Very political company, things get decided by committee and too many people like to have a voice at the table just to show their face.

Advice to Management

Management are somehow detached from reality. They have been here for a long time and have not been able to transform the company.

    Pros

    Very good learning, well paid, many opportunities of international experience, in some countries, its strong presence helps to conduct large business

    Cons

    As a big company, too many politics, that contributes to loss of opportunities, and put a lot of pressure on procurement of services

    Decentralize
