Pros

Broad range of jobs if you want to explore opportunities, Diverse employee population lends itself to working across many ethnic background and geographic areas. The Global footprint allows for travel and opportunity as well and exposure to working with different regions. Work can be what you make out of it.

Cons

Silos exist and diversity in thinking can be a challenge as well as a benefit. People do not seem to get rewarded for what they do but for what they say they do. So a very pretentious incompetent individual could rise the ranks faster than a quieter more deadicated worker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IT seems like the sweaky wheel gets the greese so promote based on merit

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    State of the art, global organization with boatloads of career opportunities throughout the corporate world and the operating units. Hard work is rewarded but given the size of the organization things can get very complicated. Top management is very clique-like and decisions get made without everyone getting an opportunity to contribute to the possibilities.

    Cons

    Firedrills on a regular basis, especially when things aren't going well. Bonuses somewhat arbitrary and at the discretion of your manager. Long hours are expected if you want to do well and although they talk work life balance it is mostly talk. Health benefits are costly and getting more costly every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that senior management involve staff more in what is going on so that bombs aren't dropped on a regular basis.
