Great company in general, let down by a few bad apples
IT Manager (Former Employee) –  Belgium16 January 2018
Whilst there are some extremely dedicated and professional employees, In the IT Dept - there are some less than savoury characters in management positions - which have been allowed manage their teams with intimidation and a certain level of maliciousness.
The company does have a great focus on Patients and bringing solutions and cures that can significantly improve their quality of life.
At management level there was quite a high level of meetings, which were not always that productive.
There is not really an open culture of communication, speaking the truth or giving your opinion to the wrong person - could easily land you in trouble.
Most people are afraid to speak out because they have seen what happens to individuals that do so.
I can not be sure, but I think that departments outside of IT, might not have the same bad management issues.
Pros
Good employment package
Cons
Weak senior management and HR functions, for dealing with rogue managers

Good company
Associate Director (Former Employee) –  Brussel-Hoofdstad17 June 2019
Nice diversity, forward-thinking management. Good, genuine CSR programmes not just mere tick the box exercises. The CEO is a genuine person who doesn't show any form of arrogance.
