    Pros

    Stable company, culture-driven, revenue focused.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, there are a ton of processes (or lack thereof) in place that really hinder your ability to do work. Very top heavy company; slim opportunity for advancement in your current role, will likely have to move to other positions within the company (often a lateral move vs. promotion); culture not suited to keep new, millennial talent. Limited budgets to do any real events and comms initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    We fill out an employee survey every year and the same issues always come up - salary, limited opportunities for advancement, voice not being heard, etc. They need to focus on these issues and actually make them better.
