    Pros

    The corporate culture is collaborative, we are keen to develop and learn, the goals are ambitious, management is laid back. Fantastic products that I as an employee feel proud to be part of creating.

    Sometimes we work in silos, happens easily in a big organisation like this. On site restaurants and gym facilities could be better.
