    Pros

    The structure of management is flat enough for a real open door policy. The motto of the company is People Come First and I find this to be mostly accurate.

    Cons

    The company is split currently between two different standards which are divided by those that work in Denmark and those here in the States. Where my counterparts in Denmark enjoy flexibility and have seemingly always had work from home - our HR only granted the US a 'piloted' summer hour program last year and this year will 'pilot' in September. My concern is how our managers will implement the program. We were recently told by Paul Navarre that this will be a standard policy not a piloted program - to which I am grateful. The business hours claim to be 7.5 but HR lists an example of our hours as 9-5:15. If this is correct we are given a 45 min lunch break we are not paid for. Another area of concern is you normally are asked to come in prior to 9 am even if you thought you might have the flexibility to come in as late as 9:30 am. I think daily you should be able to set your 7.5 hours as needed depending on your personal needs so you do not need to use PTO or sick time for a drs apt.
