    Great if you are a shareholder, not great if you are an employee outside key locations

    Pros

    There is the potential to move up through the ranks, but you have to luck out for this to happen.
    Work life balance is good and appears to be genuinely supported instead of being a power point bullet.
    Company funded pension & health care is good.
    The pay is good.
    Individual managers are good and show dedication, but the overall corporate culture seems to only ask whether something will increase shareholder value or not. If it doesn't do this in the short term then it doesn't happen.

    Cons

    They seem intent on getting rid of people and replacing them with cheaper people. This can make sense sometimes, but not when you lose entire knowledge banks which have built up over decades in Q. There doesn't seem to be any way to help cement your position and you live in fear of the next round of cuts.
    Travel is almost non-existent if you are in the lower grades. If it gets approved at all, it could be after you were due to travel and after you have cancelled your plans.
    Global communications are poor, with incorrectly targeted communications telling us about things we don't understand and can't change, and not telling us about things that affect us directly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people, stop treating them as resources and expenses. They are people with skills that built your company and fund your bonuses.
