    Pros

    Amazing company with great opportunities to learn and advance your career. It provides trainings and accountability for the job done.

    Cons

    It is too big as a multinational therefore roles are very specific and you need to have a senior role to have a significant impact on the business itself.

    It is definitely a good company to work on and management should be as open as possible, provide guidance and support but also give the freedom to the employee to bring their knowledge and creativity.
