    Fantastic company to work, depending on the country you are.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Barcelona (Spain)

    ProsValues initiative and achievements at a personal level, good recognition via bonus and senior management respect, politics relatively easy to navigate, general good organizational culture

    ConsPromotions are slow, HR behaviour appalling. Barcelona office is largely a team of old school catalan dinossaurs (hardly anyone speaks english well, apart from new people, mostly ex-pats). once these dinos retire the company might have a chance to be more competitive, open, innovative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the jurassic team in Spain (specially HR) and value new talent, promote quick.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
