      Pros

      Supportive leaders and team members from the headquarters or other branch to back you up remotely and timelessly, even though we never met each other face-to-face in the realm. Appreciated this! Dynamic changes, yet, still upholding the International Baccalaureate's visions and missions. The global pandemic as a catalyst; stakeholders strive to adapt and adjust to accomplish a win-win situation for all parties. Super awesome superiors and colleagues. We celebrate every festive and birthday.

      Cons

      Least personal development in career growth.
