    Pros

    Many possibilities to improve, participate in training, discussions. Provides a chance to learn foreign languages, work from home and the salary is very competitive

    Cons

    Long working hours, 40 hours flexible working hours means that you might work during weekends as well, overtime is not paid, too many people are involved in simple processes

    Simple processes are being complicated by adding additional roles, people who often don't know their purpose.
