    Pros

    Very international, flat structure, easy to implement new processes and change.

    Cons

    Very little possibility for career progression because of the flat structure. This also results in that it is not always a meritocracy.

    Pros

    Pleasant space to work in. Friendly people. Management recognizes hard work through bonus. Challanging, growing company which currently lets you explore new technology as long as you meet your deadlines. Good benefits. Salary is little less than market rates.

    Flat structure not many opportunities to advance. Pompus people in strategic areas (but that's the case everywhere).

    Give more opportunity for advancement, hire more people. Pay a little better.

    Pros

    Friendly and helpful colleagues and pleasant, well-equipped office. Good salary and conditions. Training program well established, and excellent sponsorship opportunities for employees. The core business of EDFT is very interesting.

    Cons

    Buck-passing culture, Inability to manage progress against strategic company goals. Senior management are not respected within the company. Interminable meetings! High staff turnover, low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop searching for magic solutions that will solve all your problems at once. Need to start promoting effective teams and teamwork. You must see that there is a reason nothing progresses, despite a strong desire for change. You should be looking for incremental change, a culture of delivery from unified teams, and a resulting boost in company morale.
