    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Fifa

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to choose your hours and games. They pay is great per hour. You also have the opportunity to interact with some great people who love the sport of soccer. You form close relationships with the members of your team. This leads to great leadership development. Younger referees also have the opportunity to have older referees as their assistants.

    Cons

    Older members are given more priority even if they are not as skillful as the younger referees. Only a few of the younger referees even have the opportunity to prove that they may be more skillful than some older members.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the younger referees as more of an asset. They usually have a better knowledge about the game because they were more recently players themselves.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, great opportunity to be involved in a such historical project. Nice experience working with FIFA. Good people and good management.

    Cons

    Not so many benefits. I had to travel a lot, so secondment costs were not big enough. Sometimes hotels in other cities were not good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure if there is something to advice. This company will be closed soon, as it was a part of the World Cup in Russia only. Was a pleasure to work with these great people.
