    An evolving company, focused on a new life

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pasadena, CA

    ProsCompany feels connected and small even though they are a good-sized Fortune 500 organization
    Pay is at market and you are rewarded - this can be controlled by your immediate management
    Employees take pride in working for the company and it shows
    Global organization that allows employees to grow
    Work-life balance is actually balanced
    Re-focused to boost a positive external image

    ConsCompany moves slowly at times
    Office politics follows the hierarchy of levels
    Senior management are not as visible or connected to employees as they should or could be
    Company values feel very "Corporate" and sometimes lack a real human element

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet involved with employees without an official corporate program - make it something totally authentic. If you want to be seen as new and current, a new office space will not cut it.
