Too large and therefore too complex an organization - hard to get a lot done quickly - too many people have to consulted on every step of the way - lot of make work

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedules. Work from home or don't work at all. No one cares.

    Cons

    No accountability. Too much bloat. Get ready to change your culture if you're American.
