    Good social element with different types of events for employees throughout the year. Opportunities to work with market leading companies.

    Pros

    The company strives for innovation. You get constant training oportunities and you have good visibility of state-of-the-art market research tools and techniques. My department was goal oriented, which is something I really enjoyed.

    Cons

    Our team had a very heavy workload, which led to high turnover rates, which created yet heavier workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Position approval, employee recruitment and onboarding processes could be much faster. This would in turn help teams cope with workloads.
