      Pros

      Global role Good exposure to executive management Growth development

      Cons

      Lack of sleep Extreme anxiety Extreme nepotism Turn over - people leave often Leadership is contentious with each other Leadership mixed messaging to perform/deliver more but you need cut more resources, yet we need you to maintain work life balance Lack of alignment despite all of the alignment meetings No recognition for lower level teammates Leadership taking credit for other teammates work Even with the workshops on people’s strengths and how best to utilize; teammates are still told to “stay in their lane” discouraging performance and innovation which leads to performers leaving Middle Managment lacking Life 2.0 skills Managers divulging private information Demotivating - Manager toxicity - using visa/green card contracts, growth wants, or transition to another team against you. Fervently giving you bad feedback where there was none before. Turf war between Germany and United States
