    Pros

    Leaders in Diamond mining, rough diamond sales and marketing.

    Cons

    With the big value chain that we have sometimes we work in isolation. New strategy to be launched in 2020 is aimed at addressing some of these concerns.

    Pros

    Low stress, they do things "as we always have done them" Nice perks Apparently a prestigious company

    Cons

    You learn nothing, never be challenged Lots of politics Business always volatile, now the natural diamond market is crumbling down, they move into synthetics (what they have been fighting for decades) but they are too big and expensive to live on producing cheap shiny bits anyone can produce in Asia. They could go bust any time. If not, expect layoffs. They already did in 2010.
