      Current Employee, more than 1 year

      A caring culture, perhaps overly so. This came out clearly during the Covid-19 pandemic.

      Pros

      Flexible work time Many smart talents Good range of products

      Cons

      Some managers are very biased, and "one team" is often applied at his/her convenience. You need to voice out (like bluff) your own strength, otherwise, managers can be blind. Poor technical training if you can't find the right persons to help. Standards dropped over the time.

      Pros

      Work-life balance is something you need to work hard to achieve.

      Cons

      A good diverse group of teammates/employees, lots of different cultures and they take inclusivity seriously. Opportunities to grow if you look for them. Lots of senior management who were willing to be mentors.
