    Pros

    Due to its global business reach, the company allows you to develop your cross cultural skills. Freedom to be the architect of your own position.

    Cons

    Not much career opportunities, promotions take a lot of time (many years) and since there are no clear job role descriptions, there is no way to track performance.

    Advice to Management

    Empower mid management to take decisions or advise on strategic decisions as in digital transformation since the company and structure is quite old fashioned.

    Pros

    Junior or immediate supervisors are understanding, caring, and act as a shield between you and senior management.

    Strict executive management always looking for results no matter the priority or resource availability. Jumping to conclusions using draft data is common.
