Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good name on resume still Interesting technologies Cool labs and smart people Good international growth

Cons

Extremely slow to recognize and adapt to change - at risk of being becoming irrelevant in US Very outdated technology systems, processes and skill sets Limited advancement, long, long waits for promotions, emphasis on lateral moves, many dead ends No real marketing expertise Even the interior is a weird flashback to what what the 1950s looked like, and many current employees were probably working there then (40+ years of service not uncommon, while employees under the age of 40 quite uncommon)

Advice to Management

Could be a cool place to work again with a complete overhaul to bring it to the 2000's.

    Pros

    Management does a good job of promoting career advancement and gives employees opportunties to develop their careers through new training and experiences.

    Large company so you can sometimes feel disconnected from company or division improvements and growth.

    Some of the leadership team should promote more trust within the organization and limit micromanaging of routine issues.
