    The internship program can be improved; everyone needs to bring their own lunch in this site since they have cut off the cafeteria...

    Pros

    A good company to work for. Good benefits

    Cons

    Head office is in Finland and people there naturally try to protect their job so they are not really open to new ideas. Normal work takes extra normal time.

    Advice to Management

    Use the talent wherever it is. Decentralize.
