Was a good place to work, not sure it is now.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsInternational organization with a committed group of employees.
International travel available depending on position, traveling to interesting places in Europe, Asia and Africa.

ConsTime of turmoil. Leadership changed in last 6 months, resulting in the poor ratings for leadership and management of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementEngage employees more. Invest time to communicate with employees and bring them into the plan.
Treat local leaders as decision makers with at least a voice in the decision making process.
Recognize the value of support functions like IT and HR in the modern business era.
Too much 'Fire, Aim, Ready' rather than 'Ready, Aim, Fire'.
