    Pros

    If you have initiative you can make a real difference here. Management structures are flat, fun atmosphere and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Only doing projects at Banks and Insurance companies - no other industries. Rather new with internationalization and therefore some challenges when dealing with the headquarter.

    Cons

    - Very intense at times due to demanding client and internal projects - If you are looking for industry exposure beyond financial services this may not be for you - You may end up over a longer period with the same client

    Advice to Management

    o Continue the overall good work so far o Find ways to retain the positive culture elements despite the growth in the existing and new locations o Become more effective and forward-looking when it comes to covering new offerings and types of clients and be willing to invest o Ensure sustainability and continuity and don't focus only on growth and sales
