    Pros

    You can be given opportunities quickly if you're in the right place at the right time, and if your reputation is strong. Great ability to move around across the organization once you prove yourself. Great thing is that although roles are very narrow you do have the change to try new things and move around over time. However, be careful of getting stuck - people need to know who you are, and relationships (like everywhere) are critical. People ,ake up their mind quickly about you, and word travels fast.

    Cons

    Absolutely need a champion - if you or your group get caught up in the politics you're toast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People seem to fail up - be ruthless and cut the poor performers irrespective of relationships.

    Pros

    There are many talented people there, and lots of opportunities to do some interesting work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the work is hampered by lots of bureaucracy. Often times, corporate politics, rather than results, determine who gets ahead. The infrastructure is antiquated. Too little attention is paid to strenthening the long term health of the company. Every project is reviewed for quick pay back without thought to investing in long term growth. Recent layoffs contributed to severe morale issues; just waiting for the other shoe to drop in 2009.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the longer view; remember it's easier and more profitable to sustain and grow existing customers than to acquire new ones. Same goes for nurturing and developing current employees.
