    Pros

    Fantastic leadership by Gail Kelly. Culture, diversity and employee engagement is important to this company. Theres many opportunities to move within the company.

    Cons

    None really, but I guess it depends what team/division you work for which will depend on compensaton, promotions etc. As much as you don't want, theres politics in every employer.

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment. Very collaborative within business units, though challenging to identify opportunities and collaborate across BUs. This is improving dramatically and could be a long-term shift. Currently there is plenty of "us and them" internally and the politics are not for the faint of heart.

    Cons

    Probably true in any large corporation, but there is little collaboration, and in fact outright competition, at the GM level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, be willing to challenge and debate rather than mandate.

    Pros

    Great team, good for personal growth, great culture.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, hard working environment. Can't really say too much it all depends on which department you're in.
