    Pros

    Variety of opportunity, lots of really great people, very attractive employment packages at all levels - very good pension scheme. Generous holiday allowance.

    Cons

    Massively complex organisational structure - hard to navigate. More effort expended in working through the internal politics than actually delivering the goods. More TLAs than you can shake a stick at!

    Advice to Management

    Have a good hard look at the organisational structure. The existing structure must present massive governance issues, and also creates significant functional duplication.

    Incredibly flexible company. Super good environment, people being really nice. You do learn a lot about costumer facing and how to manage different type of clients. Large number of internal opportunities across the world.

    Cons

    Too relaxed environment compared to other companies. Sometimes you will find hard to get other teams do their job.

    To promote more personal career and development plans. They could also offer a higher range of internal learning like languages or code courses.

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Generous vacation days
    Great diversity within the company

    Cons

    Job security is awful. There has been rounds of lay-off over the past years
    Other places pay more for the same job
    Very limited room to move up with your career path.
    Not enough IT resources to provide support.
    I run into non-competitive people every so often.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who has expertise in their fields and pay them more. Stop hiring people with little experience just because the company don't have to pay them as much.
