    Pros

    Huge and famous company. Values diversity, you can work together with all kinds of nationalities from around the world. Has very good online training system. Flexible, lets you work from home.

    Cons

    Hard work is not appreciated. We're just a small part of the big machine - professional background, individual values are not rated higher for a job that can be done with less knowledge. Big turnover- over 2 years I had 4 managers. Not much hope for a valid assessment any time soon. Never felt my job is stable though worked really hard for most of the time.
