    Breeds loyalty

    Great Company hands down!

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Espoo (Finland)

    ProsPeople are great. Technology is great, lot's of talent. poorly managed though. This is something management should take a look at. Values are great as they promote work life balance but some culture change of doing something you want should be promoted.

    ConsStrategies have failed, lack of vision in the company and a clear slow progression. Now that is the reason why microsoft acquired them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to have a vision that is not 'keeping it safe' but bold and ambitious.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
