    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Barcelona (Spain)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Barcelona (Spain)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Promotions 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the jurassic team in Spain (specially HR) and value new talent, promote quick.
