So much potential, we just need to execute on it.

Director (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsGood benefits, a chance to explore a multitude of different parts of the business if the opportunities are presented, a very interesting and dynamic industry where the company has positioned itself well for long term growth.

ConsPolitics, bureaucracy, silos, and the typical issues you'd deal with in any company that employs 300,000+ employees. Our senior officer core group of leadership has defined a path forward that makes sense, but our junior officer and VP ranks don't always have the business accumen to execute on what's been set as our course.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaking the move to Dallas was a big first step towards truly walking the talk on leaving behind our stagnant culture. We need to make this move not just about geography but also truly a mindset within the company. We need to clean house on some corporate overhead as the move occurs, and we need to continue to attract talent from outside because we can't breed all leadership internally on key components. Our biggest change needs to occur in our HR measurements and talent evaluation. We can't keep compensating everyone on the same bonus structure with a little sprinkle on top for the top percentile, and we need to engrain a system that moves the middle and incents bottom performers to find a new job elsewhere. Top performers continue to grow weary of being treated the same as those that underperform, and without a more objective means of identifying talent and grooming it to lead the business in the future, we're going to find ourselves in an even bigger crunch for innovative and dynamic leaders than we already have today.
