    The American organization with a Swedish working culture

    Consultant (Current Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    ProsThe Swedish working culture is friendly and creates an open athmosphere - you can ask anyonne about anything and always get a friendly welcome.

    ConsThe organization is hierarchical which makes it less flexible and the process of taking decisions may take longer than average.

    A Horrible Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey do offer free coffee.

    ConsWhat can I say? Who wants to work in a place with no training budget and managers who speak to employees in a condescending and insulting manner. On top of that the office environment in Rockville is terrible and allows for very little privacy while working. In the long run, you are much better off seeking experience elsewhere and many other organizations in the Washington metro region offer better retirement packages.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider investing in your employees and treating them with professional respect and courtesy rather than tearing them down in front of others.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot of change within the organization - through acquisitions and internal growth, so it's always interesting

    ConsThe constant change can wear you down at times and like most companies now, there is constant pressure to keep headcount low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor proper growth, sometimes it's good to invest in infrastructure

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
