    Pros

    Good environment, supportive colleagues, not stressful, good international teams and Communication, good discounts and benefits, quite good canteen, flexible working hours

    Cons

    Poor management: lack of experience in management, don't look at the quality of work only at metrics, don't help, when you ask for help, no carrier opportunities and progression, salary can be 10.000 difference for the same role, hiring a lot if EU ppl to save on their salary.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management needs to be replaced, there are only few good managers. Company culture and values are not in place.
