    Pros

    Lots of support, open to new ideas and innovation and great HR department.

    Cons

    Too large to get even the smallest things done sometimes. Takes weeks for projects to even be looked at and there's a heavy reliance on presentations and formal meetings. Just get the work done and move on.
