Although it is an International company, you will probably be shocked if you are a foreigner. The H.Q. in Billund is very Danish, and is placed in the countryside. If you have a good idea and can argument for it - you will be give the resources necessary It is not a stressfree environment, there is a lot of activity, but there is no back-stabbing - its is a nice place to work.
Tip: Don't be ordinary but be yourself - and that goes in any job.... I believe the personal department has been outsourced - sorry But be cheeky and aim high...
Singapore A great place to live. Most international cities offer good flight connection to Singapore. The city is wonderfully clean, the food is out of this world (still miss it) the service is excellent, the people are polite. Futhermore Singapore has a wellfunctioning infrastructure and is conveniently located in the center of Asia Pacific Everybody speaks English. Renting an appartment however is expensive, mine was 2800 SGD a month, but standards are high for expat living, my condo had swiming pool, squash court and fitness room Plenty of sports and cheap travel to nearby island, great for scuba-diving. Culturally Singapore is so-so, but there are plenty of cinemas and nightlife, however alcohol is VERY expensive Sports and recreation - everywhere.
I came in the back-door, by being very cheeky and very persistent. LEGO does not react immediately, but when they do react they move fast.
