    Has potential to be better, but will it ever be?

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good values, working atmosphere, not excessively hierarchical, more activity oriented than process oriented which allows to take new directions relatively fast. Lots of room to succeed if you have leadership and want to get things done

    Cons

    The ability to be fast is hindered by insufficient focus on performance at a micro level; all focus on performance is on macro level and rather with short term perspectives
    Limited coaching, it can be swim or drown.
