    Pros

    Great benefits. Good mentor programs. Many outlets for work-life balance (e.g. Asian network, LGBT, pickup soccer, good gym facilities). Onsite daycare is a plus. 9/80 work schedule is fantastic. Fairly flexible work hours as long as you get the job done and meet expectations.

    Cons

    Sometimes the process of large corporations can bog down efficiency, but there is a reason the process is in place, especially post-Macondo. The "safety moments" can be a excessive.

    Advice to Management

    The 10-yr "Excellence Program" is a bit unreasonable.
