    Global mobility, supportive colleagues and environment. My teams have always been encouraging for seeking opportunities in other teams. Management seem to genuinely care about career progression.

    Similar to other large organizations, Internal policies and bureaucracy are issues here as well. Getting to be a more stringent and difficult operating environment with more layers and issues when it comes to 'thinking outside the box"
