Pros

Opportunities for growth
Competitive salary
Great wellness programs including onsite fitness center and cafe
Good people who want to do the right thing

Cons

Too many silos
Hard to get things done with IT / behind in technology

Advice to Management

High-level strategy is clear but not enough detail at next level down to be aligned across organization. Too slow to get aligned and then it's a fire drill to get things done.

    Pros

    Lot's of really smart people. Great Location. Lots of money to spend on initiatives. People really want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Lots of smart people handcuffed by bureaucracy and middle management. Many processes that kill innovation. Lots of resources spend protecting fiefdoms; internal defence instead of external offense.

    Advice to Management

    cut 20% accross the board. continue with the cutting of the dead weight. Focus on outcomes and not on process.
