Pros

Room for growth when you have good managers. This is a company that one could easily stay with for 10, 20+ years because of the many opportunities.
Education allowance, excellent HR team make career paths easy to navigate.
Flexible hours if you're in the right department and have a manager who subscribes to official corporate values.
Defined benefit pension plan.

Cons

Salary is not competitive.
Many managers are not forward-thinking, discourage innovative solutions, and want staff to minimize communication with other departments for fear of looking bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate that cross-departmental learning is beneficial and that front-line staff are often better sources of accurate information than diluted messages communicated by management. Recognize that flexible work hours/locations are hugely important to many talented staff members who are trying to balance work/life.
