    Pros

    Stable, large company. Good benefits. Some very technically knowledgable and strong senior managers. Some very good and hard workers at the associate level.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement. Low salaries in comparison of similar industry and experience. Like most large corporations, politics and favoritism determine advancement opportunities. Middle management more concerned with their own aspirations than developing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Look into departments with extremely high turnover. The root cause is middle managers that are impossible to work for.

  10. Great place to work if you have a good manager
