    A lot of talented people.
    Good opportunities to grow as a professional.
    Your voice is heard, there is a good relationship between higher management and employees of all levels.
    Interaction with employees of other affiliates is encouraged and often helps when learning to do new things.
    Many trainings are offered and trainings can be requested.
    Work environment is good, although there is a lot of work.
    360 evaluations for management.
    Employee satisfaction surveys are done globally and the results are taken into account.
    Truly international team.

    Pros

    Strong culture, aggressive (in a positive sense) and fast-paced, rewards hard work and contributions with opportunities
    Strong and well developed processes - internally we feel over-engineered, externally we are often seen as state of the art
    Great talent management process

    Cons

    Integration of new entrants is a challenge, but if you can hit the ground running the reward is worth it
    Culture still somewhat hierarchical but beginning to change
    Not very forgiving with mediocrity

    Advice to Management

    Keep going but don't lose sight of those who got you where we are today. Stick with our principles that are behind our success. Remember that we need to invest in our success, even at a cost...ease down on the cost cutting.

    Learned a lot being part of this organization. Great employees too. We were like family.

    Acquisition of Fortune wasnt a good idea at all. Organization chart is a mess with so many managers. Getting managers that are expat, slim chance for locals to occupy the post.

    Value people especially those who spent their lives being a good employees, giving great contributions.
