Swede here. I’ve heard that they prioritize Swedes for higher positions so there might be an Ikea-ceiling if you would want to have a career there. I know some people that have worked there but I’m not sure about the work balance though, if it’s any close to Swedish standards I would assume that it’s not too much overtime even for consulting and that senior management would be open for some flexibility in the schedule if necessary

Nice, thanks. And what about the scope of work? They claim to do Market assessment, M&A... but it is a bit confusing 'cause if they are mainly a trade office that is not the type of work you usually do.
