Pros

Great work/life balance, excellent benefits, challenging opportunities. Internal job rotation is getting better, used to be frowned upon in some groups. Great systems and internal tools to get information.

Cons

Limited career development opportunities. Unless you are a rising start, it's difficult to move upward. As the company is getting larger, it's difficult to get things done - too much beaurocracy. Managers are too busy to help, many times you will be on your own with limited support. Not much social interaction, groups and teams are very silod.

Advice to Management

Recognize your employees for the work they do. Spend more time with employee development.
