    Pros

    Good benefits package, good pay, good opportunity to learn new skills

    Cons

    Leadership changes every 3 years thus does not provide stability and experience to the organization - not enough time, instead upset the processes and stability. Leadership does not always represent the company values instead are concerned about their career and movement, leaving the non-exempt workforce in their wake.

    Advice to Management

    Train and develop leadership. Ensure enough staffing so non-exempts can train, develop and provide continuity of skills as attrition occurs.

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary, incredible history/stability

    Cons

    Decision making is slow at best. Middle management is rewarded for taking risk instead of delivering results. Company likes to say they hire the best employees when in reality they hire the best employees who are willing to live in Cincinnati.

    Advice to Management

    Enable faster decision making, stop rewarding for taking inappropriate risks and wasting company money, take advantage of being a global company and retain/hire the best of the best regardless of location.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Great trainings. Big brand names. A great set of intellectuals and personalities overall. I have met some of my very good friends and mentors here. If you want to come and learn for a while, do join this company. If you are an ambitious individual who want to move up as fast as you produce results, this is not the place for you.

    Cons

    So much politics. So much bureaucracy that can drive people who do not enjoy the unnecessary lime light crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Practice "servant leadership". Understand that if you just talk and not walk what you just said, especially when it comes to simplifying and improving the way we work, then your words and leadership is totally meaningless. About 20% of the senior management I have worked with at this company are good at servant leadership and walk their own talk - which is really disheartening for a company that holds near and dear their "PVPs". Let's throw away the mentality of "creating unnecessary work for my team so I look good to the CEO" mentality.

    Good salary and benefits but not a contemporary company - still an old boys club

    Pros

    Good salary. Good benefits. Many opportunities to develop yourself and your skill sets for your next job in a different company. The valued career path is that of a manager. High competition - but , if you make it, you get high financial rewards.

    Cons

    It's still an old boy's club. You either belong , or you don't. Despite a visually diverse group of employees, this is not an inclusive organization. . It lost many excellent employees recently, because it failed to recognize talent and so people left. The R&D is in shambles. Managers compete with reporting employees for job security, which makes for a very tough place . Work-life balance is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers in the company, who dont really "produce" anything of value. So, the managers try to derive value from what their reporting employees are producing, often at the expense of the employee. I have observed Senior VP's destroy one GBU after another , due to poor and vicious management styles, force good employees to leave by giving poor ratings based on false accusations , to meet headcount reductions, so their own job is secured , and then walk away with bounty !
