    Pros

    Multinational, opportunities for growth and development (especially if you are geographically mobile), good training curriculum - especially leadership skills, respectful people and good teamwork. The everyday working environment is relaxed and fun, although this may vary by team / function. The company has clear strategies, future vision, strong ethical values, as well as a very solid financial performance.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits are average (the bonus and annual raises are low). After a certain point, career progression requires international mobility, even outside one's continent, and the expat package budgets are getting lower and lower. Demanding management, a lot of pressure, fast moving environment but also many long processes can be frustrating and bad for work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing the right things for the business. They should not forget giving people opportunities for growth and motivation in the context of tough global economic environment and corporate restructuring.
