    Fast Paced, tons of projects to get involved with, great brand name

    Cons

    HR is very uneffective and is has very little impact on employees general well being and is mostly concerned with passing a good image to corporate HQ , not backed up by actual initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    For HQ´s HR staff: dig deeper into the affiliates HR practices - don´t be fooled by reports and good personal marketing done by HR directors.
