    Pros

    1. Wonderful and talented CEO who can empathize with people and know what they going through at the workplace.
    2. Amazing people
    3. No micromanagement
    4. Freedom
    5. Leadership is not given to people based solely on their performance but on their attitude and conduct towards others along with the performance.

    Cons

    As in the case with every other company, there are black sheep who try to take the credit, however, the managers are sharp enough to understand.
    As a service provider to internal clients within the group based in Norway, USA, Malaysia, etc., not many are getting opportunities, and as result their careers are hitting a roadblock.
    It's good to work to here initially, and boring once you get saturated.

    Advice to Management

    Please do something by involving the global management of Aker to revive the careers of people.
