    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Fair salary (although needed to push a bit when negotiated), good company contributions to social aspects (e.g., they compensated my family's health insurance). Liked travel their expenses compensation policy - you get a fixed daily amount regardless if you spend less. In case you spend more, you can submit detailed claim and get reimbursed.

    Cons

    Very much Norwegian - i.e., if you are from and in Norway, you get more opportunities and benefits. I mean, this is not a discrimination, it's just that in Norway they got better policies for employees (probably, as the result of more social environment and gov politics). Haven't seen many opportunities for non-Norwegians get/been promoted to top positions.

    Advice to Management

    Get more - ideally, up to 50% - non-Norwegian people in the top management and execs.
