Pros

A lot of technologies to chose from when interested in expanding your career growth. Each division is run like a seperate business unit which can host many available jobs.

Cons

Because there are so many divisions promotions and yearly ratings may differ largerly because of the group or division you are in.

Advice to Management

Some good technical people are not good managers or supervisors but follow that path to increase there compensation which really hurts the company more then it helps.

    Pros

    Long term commitment to R&D and dual ladder (Technical Professionals and Management)
    World Class technology platforms!
    Culture of internal innovation with open sharing across the company
    Uncompromising ethics and commitment to doing the right thng
    Long term, Global, Perspective
    Strong support for and myriad opportunities to obtain continuing education
    Opportunity (if you are qualified) to move across the company to obtain multiple experiences

    Cons

    Conservative management culture (can be a bit risk adverse)
    Tend to strive toward being middle of the road in compensation while still expecting top tier performance

    Advice to Management

    Our roots and corporate strategy depends on strong R&D performance, but it seems that fewer and fewer executive conference members seem to have had a significant experience in R&D or even to have a technical degree. If our future dep[ends on this continued strategy, do we need to start swinging the pendulum back a bit?


  2. For a large company very good experience, so far.
