  • Flexible Working(30 comments)

    It depends on your supervisor, but in general they are more goal oriented. This means that you can distribute your time as you like as soon as they see progress and results. This allow you to freely decide what is best for you and for example join courses, practice sports or also work from home (when possible).

  • Sick Pay(10 comments)

    When you are sick you received the full salary if you have a medical report.

  • Pension Plan(5 comments)

    I loved my pension plan. They contributed more than my previous employer.
