Ample opportunities for development and career progress if start working FCO in young age ...going through ranks but not the best place for mid level career enteries ...it takes time to progress and sometimes so slow one may need to change path after all.
Extremtly intelligent, ambitious environment with highly capable and talented resources ...in right teams you go up and progress so well. In wrong teams ...it is boring at the very best.
