    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    no pressure at work and decent amount of allowed time off. you can keep your job without doing much work.

    Cons

    No room to advance and grow and strict one-way communication from the management. 'Global' way is Swedish way and no real clear goal or vision other than big talks from the management.

    Advice to Management

    please value regional (non-EU) employees, and senior regional management should focus more on regional growth and should listen to the voices from regional folks.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great medical and dental benefits and one of the last companies to offer cash pension plan. Takes care of employees, does not lay off employees at the slightest whim and fancy. Management supports your ideas and information flows freely between management and employees. Personal business plan for employees - excellent way of stating actionable goals to achieve in a year and monitoring them.

    Cons

    Slowest decision making process and after spending countless weeks discussing it in "workshops". Senior management lacks a backbone to take tough decisions. Decisions made in Sweden sometime absolutely make no sense.

    Advice to Management

    management in Sweden: There are awesome guys working in NA. Listen to them so that they feel that thier opinion is being heard.
