Current Employee - Group Finance Manager
Current Employee - Group Finance Manager
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

ability to do most anything from switch careers (marketing to finance then to operations)
work with very talented people who push you to learn more and do your best
fantastic finance rotation programs especially for those who want to work internationally

Cons

becoming more rigid due to size
politics is taking more of a driving role rather than innovation focus
work/life balance is less than ideal

Advice to Management

focus on providing leadership and removing obstacles to getting the job done. We are too process heavy which slows down decision making and execution.
