    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    flat hierarchy, lack of good staff creates opportunities, self-initiative is key at all levels, some motivated staff at country-level, Emerging Markets work for sure more dynamic than "old world"

    Cons

    2009 restructuring created uncertainties and frustration, lack of long-term thinking i.e. increased HQ in Luxembourg in 2008, 2009 new CEO and now regional offices in Miami & Dubai and smaller HQ in Luxembourg

    Advice to Management

    stop fooling around and start executing, e.g. mobile payment service: discussed for last 3 years, the outcome so far: one pilot in South America - where is your commitment to VAS as the growth driver?
