Pros-- The international nature of the businesses makes it complex, but also interesting.
-- The diversity of products and customers served provides employees a wide variety of areas in which they can excel.

Cons-- The focus on reducing compensation and benefits in all areas outside the executive suite can make for a tough environment in which to work.

ConsCompany is being managed for short term results vs longer term competitive position. Layoffs and downsizing is causing a loss over talented people needed to sustain this company.
