    Pros

    The leadership is brilliant and truly cares about the workforce. The pride in the brands is quite infectious and reflect both inside and outside the work environment. I personally like the commitment to corporate responsibility and setting the bar high for greater good in lieu of bigger profit margins.

    Cons

    The IT leadership can definitely learn a thing or two (or even more) from the executive leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incubate and grow deep technical talent to stay competitive in the digital economy that is spreading rapidly across the world.

    Pros

    Very friendly and relaxed company environment. People are professional and helpful. Company cares about the overall wellbeing of its people.

    Cons

    Cons are the same for any large corporation - too many hands in the pot. If there is an issue regarding work process, then you would need to involve a lot of people.

    Pros

    I was an intern and the company was really wonderful. Everyone was generally happy, willing to help, and enthusiastic about their job.

    Cons

    The interview process felt rather disorganized as they were restructuring the division I was interning. My initial start date kept being pushed back, but once I began, I loved it!
