    Pros

    It’s very good balance of working and living. It’s very well structured to make success. Payment is decent.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, you won’t be able to go that much up no matter what success you may have, it’s all about “office politics “. There is a deep overlapping in many areas, so instead of a support you may get a “leg”. Most of employees trying not to go to the office if there is no need for.
