In your first months in the company, you are mainly trained on the leadership principles, which feels like a total brainwash. After you ramp up, people expect you to put in crazy hours, even if you don't see value in what you're doing. If you start complaining too much, they will put you on a so-called "coaching plan" or "personal improvement plan", to make you feel like you are a total failure and they are only there to help you perform at your best. In reality, they are putting even more pressure on you and if you don't hit the targets, they will have a valid case to fire you.

Assistante Légal (Former Employee) - Luxembourg
Recrutement très long quel que soit le poste, on passe par de nombreuses étapes et interlocuteurs (futurs collègues, managers,..).
La pression est mise d entrée de jeu et le volume de travail est assez impressionnant mais c est la culture d entreprise. Très forte cohésion d équipe, vitale pour atteindre les objectifs ! On apprend beaucoup sur soi même et sur ses limites, sur ce que l on accepte et sur ce que l'on accepte pas /plus. Expérience épuisante mais enrichissante néanmoins

Fun place to work, requires you to be self driven and manage your assignment, giving regular feedback. Very quick to adopt new changes and supportive to explore different methods to drive continuous improvements.
