    I worked at Kongsberg Automotive full-time

    Pros

    Free coffee and massage chairs. Overpays for VPs.

    Cons

    Small company with no brand recognition in the auto industry. Pays below market wages. No cool or sexy products. This already makes it difficult to attract and retain employees. On top of that a toxic work culture and no flexibility with employees. They announced a new initiative for a “Black Raspberry Award” for the site with the highest number of accidents.
