    Pros

    Good salary, good bonus, office is really nice. There has been a lot of new people so the company is feeling fresh and new

    Cons

    It very Danish! Sometimes it feel like a Danish club. But it's slowly getting better. Expanding very quickly, not sure if the company is keeping up

    I worked at Lego Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very employee centric
    Lots of development opportunities, if you get time!
    Exciting times with the Global Agenda
    Strong total reward (salary, benefits and bonus)

    Cons

    Need to be more mindful of communication from CM, core messages can be lost in the downward cascade.
    Face needs to fit if you want progress
    Diversity, what exactly is the strategy, promoting employees into senior roles when they are not ready to meet targets.
    Some employees are allowed to get away with very poor behaviour

    Advice to Management

    They should do a better job at achievements.
