    Pros

    People are generally very nice to work with. The company as a whole seems to value employees but that can vary by department.

    Cons

    Technology environments and practices are dated and such a large organization take a long time to shift direction. Changes are in progress but with so much to address the timeline is long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace change and enhancements in technology, value the employees with the vision to take you to the next level.
