Pros

- Locations all around the world.

- A successful transaction processing business.

- A big brand name on your CV

Cons

- Incompetent middle managers whose main responsibilities seem to be to "fabricate relevance", "only pretend to add value" and "brown-nosing".

- Dirty Politics

- Tall poppies will be chopped.

- Absolutely no respect for employees & their personal time

- Startlingly low diversity, especially at the tech & ops. division. If you aren't in the "correct" ethnic group & sub group, you don't stand a chance.

- Merit has little value, only brown-nosing to be part of the right clique can get you ahead

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Value the people you "manage" (or "fail to manage effectively"), you are irrelevant without them.

- Respect the people who can actually deliver, especially if you are not one of them.
