    Pros

    interesting work, good communication, the physical facility is well kept and is conducive to serious work. The workforce is international and immensely talented.

    Cons

    lots of structure, and one must be aware of the unwritten do's and don'ts or career obstacles will occur. Typical for a larger company, it can be difficult to do things quickly in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the amount of rules and structure. A lot of energy is expended in producing charts, reports, tables, etc., for review meetings and regular reporting.

    Pros

    Inspiring culture. Culture of internal enterpreneurship. If you start and develop your own project - you will receive encouragement and resources. You see results done by yourself. If your results are good you will be noticed and get opportunities to grow and be developed.
    Good team. Growth potential in Russia. Wise managers in BD / Gases. Encouraging managers in GSS.
    Technical knowledge and technical decision-making is changing to good as company gains experience in Russian cuture.
    Official salary, medical insurance incl. dental, corporate fitness, training programms etc.

    Cons

    Somewhen unclear connections between departments or single employees in a team. That results in resposibility sharing and work overload.
    The team is young and motivated but that causes lack of technical expertise sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more attention on inter-department interaction, it is often ineffective. Meet all memebers of international project team in person at least once.
    Hire extra people to reduce everyday workload. Now it's challenging but physically you feel tired.
    Grow technical expertise inside the country.

    The pay was low, which is average for an internship

    Come up with something other than cold calling for interns to do
