    The management would pitch peers against each other to try to get the best people but without the incentive when successful

    Advice to Management

    Can't offer any advice - line managers on the whole mean well, but are restricted on how much they can help their direct reports, due to restrictive HR policy, especially around pay.

    Pros

    Excellent development opportunities, good work culture - people are very genuine. Type of work experience you get is of a very high professional standard.

    Cons

    The globalisation of processes is still maturing. Can lead to added complexity / red tape. There are excellent career progression opportunities at senior levels but will require a commitment to moving countries regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Due to constant movement of senior management it often feels like decision making at a country/regional level is made with no more than a 1-2 year period in mind and based on how the senior managers immediate targets will be impacted (as this is how their success is measured). It feels like there is no consideration given to having short term pain for long term gain.
