    Pros

    Looks good on resume - what you are asked to do (even though likely impossible to achieve) will be very compelling when you are trying to get the heck out.

    Cons

    Ridiculously antiquated HR "stack rank" assessments demoralize knowledge workers and alienate new talent trying to make an impact in a passive aggressive culture of career survivalists. Constant reorgs means everyone has was too much work to be effective so the "who you know" culture ends up dictating your work assignments, likelihood of actually getting the promised "work-life balance" and ultimately compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forcing a high performing team to identify people as not meeting expectations when everyone is working 200% year in year out is morally reprehensible and creates a Lord of the Flies environment. There is no way that can "align" with the a touted company culture of community-centered and service oriented.
