      Pros

      Great group of people, local Managers and Executives really show they care about their employees. Great passion for what they do.

      Cons

      Working for a foreign Billion-dollar company often means that big decisions are often made elsewhere by people you don't know and there's little you can do to influence them. This is one of those cases.

      Overall - A healthy and great atmosphere and team

      Pros

      Feels like the company really takes care of you. People are all very driven and capable of their jobs. Lots of learning opportunities and managers that clearly spend time time caring about their teams and pushing them to improve.

      Cons

      The leads often have a mismatch of vision and this leads to 'silent disagreement' which in turn leads to, often, a build up of bad decisions, one of which being to revamp production entirely. There is the feeling of needing to navigate political waters with people from different teams. This is beyond the simple professional and courteous presentation and behavior from yourself and more to the point that your feedback can get taken the wrong way. So you need to be thoughtful in your response. Note that this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but a more general, open and encouraging atmosphere of feedback would go a long ways in helping people in different teams freely give critical feedback to each other.
