    Pros

    Colleague aren’t the worst

    Cons

    Finance is every where over the world. To understand a transaction you need to call people from all around the world as the company is too focus on cost rather than quality. Very cut throat environment. If they decide that a country is cheaper to operate, they will fire everyone and then hire in new place.

    Advice to Management

    Know what you team is doing to save cost.
