The people are what make this place. The company works hard to ensure the staff are the focus. We have had training sessions about how to be efficient at work without burn out for example. The chance to work alongside some of the most experienced people in the industry is invaluable. A lot of people have been in the company for a long time, because they constantly feel challenged and valued. The working culture allows for innovation and progressive change.
Managing the stake holders can be problematic and time consuming. Meetings take up too much time and get in the way of getting your actual work done.
Some people have worked here for 20-30 years, due to the company's ability to keep them happy and challenged.
The company works with a very good system that allows you to learn a lot by moving around in the company, therefore increasing the opportunities to learn and make a difference. They reward you for hard work and initiatives and take the human side of the job into account.
It can feel hard some times as it is a competitive environment where you are expected to perfom at all times; There are opportunities to progress but these are not based on how well you work but rather on whom you know and your personnality. However, this is politics and it can be found in pretty much any large companu
The pay and benefits package are not bad but you could expect better
The staff is really involved in the job and try to strive and perform. Friendly atmosphere and helpful colleagues that make you feel welcome. There are opportunities to progress and the benefits package is good.
As with any large company, there always seem to be loads of politics going on within the workplace. It unfortunately has an incidence on promotion. Indeed, there are opportunities to progress but you have to be in good terms with the right people. They don't give you opportunities to take initiatives and think on your feet so it can be really frustrating.
Good work/life balance
People are involved and helpful and make it a pleasure to work in such a stimulating and friendly environment. There are lots of opportunities to learn and acquire new skills that are transferable and make you feel valued and make the job rewarding. The salary and the benefits are good and you can achieve a good work/life balance.
There is a lot of red tape which can be frustrating at times as things don't move as quicky as they should. As it is a large company, it can seem a little impersonal and unfeeling and management can be perceived as not being flexible enough.
This is a company taking personal development into consideration.
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
