    Pros

    Great team to work with;
    Provide loads of learning experience if you are up to;
    Opportunities for international interaction and experience;
    It's a challenging environment good side: develops resilience

    Cons

    Sadly, leadership lacked planning capability so project moved forward to be later undone with huge loss of money;
    Although the performance review program is good, its execution lacks maturity;
     The challenging environment is a rollercoaster and lacks stability to drive business forward.

    Advice to Management

    Make better research-based decisions;
    Look ahead

    Pros

    Flexible subsidised cafe, People are mostly nice, can take a while for solutions to arrive, but when they do they tend to fix the issue fairly, traffic can make getting out of the car park hard, but that tends to be rare these days. Most of IBM legacy has gone, but that is a good thing.

    Cons

    You are IT hardware be prepared for tight margins, some channel conflict.
