Pros

Great management overall; good salary/benefits; inspiring place to work in terms of contributions to the world; for such a big company, adjusts surprisingly quickly to market issues and opportunities.

Cons

Of late, the company has had numerous re-orgs and the most recent one let go some personnel who were solid contributors which is impacting morale. Also, it appears there's a tops down push to simply eliminate some processes.

Advice to Management

Be more consultative in reorganizations to be sure you're only cutting fat, not muscle. Latest reorg feels like big, bureaucratic company move.
