    Pros

    Good benefits in that they don't require any contributions from the employee. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Absolutely clueless leadership in Denmark. Working for the Americas sales/service organization I saw leaders who had no idea what it meant to lead. VPs were prolific, and didn't need to be at such a high level. Money was being spent left and right on the most silly things, yet we were going through constant layoffs, and they still are. Quality issues are abundant, and yet the technical staff are all more interested in working on the next generation rather than on what's current. Very high stress given the cost cutting initiatives going on constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the CEO in Denmark, and put leaders of the business units in place who actually know how to run a business instead of lawyers and politicians. While this is a very political subject area, you don't need a politician to run the business, you need business leaders!

    Pros

    US Senior Leadership was great.

    Cons

    Lack of planning. Denmark would come up with a "great" idea and give you a week to implement.
