Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

With a diverse team of 140 professionals from 30 nationalities, one of the things that I appreciate the most is how we all come from different backgrounds and can therefore assist each other on different levels. We each bring very unique skills to the team which is quite enriching.
