    Lost direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGlobal firm - pockets of business that are slowly changing culture.

    ConsPoor management and hr policies - little interest in employee development, engagement or retention. High turnover, poor culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSaying employees are the most important asset means nothing unless it is backed by real management decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice platform

    ProsQuite a few smart managers in research department. I'm pretty sure you can learn a lot from those guys. Many of them are pretty nice.

    ConsThere are also some managers with bad tempers. You don't want to work for them. You will be depressed by working with them.
