    Pros

    Pension and medical insurance On site canteen

    Cons

    The leadership is weak. The ship is slowly sinking with a terrible work culture. Very old fashioned company with furniture to match. No alignment with MasterCard. Very amateur with everything from management to simple procedure or processes. It operates like a company in the dark ages. The top dogs here are of course all men.
