Pros

The company is so large that you can move from department to department if you are let off. Very large range of skills there.

Cons

Sometimes it can be too large. It's easy to make connections inside your department but there are so many people that if you want to be recognized you really have to swim through the rest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They do a great job of including everyone in meetings and really do listen to each other. The meetings are rarely larger than 8 people.
