Good pay and nice cafe

ConsNot everybody is smart (some people are just going along because they have been at the company long)

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more young people, and make changes fast (older workforce although good, is still resistant to change...just my impression though)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
