Pros

Great location, great training for learning how plumb and understand corporate thinking, first-class facilities, prestigious company. Lots of pleasant co-workers.

Cons

Expectation for precision in accounting for project budgets can be a bit lax. A bit much paper shuffling to balance internal departmental balance sheets – after all, it's all in the same company.
There are some cliques and some people who are their favorites don't always pull their weight.

Advice to Management

Learn how designers think, just designers strive to learn how you think. Be more open to doing business with new outside creative vendors

    Pros

    With the exception of paid time off, good benefits. Lots of training and employee activities. I had an office when I was there but those have been eliminated recently. Some opportunities for overseas assignments especially if you work in Finance.

    Cons

    Extremely political. One person doesn't like you and you can be gone without knowing what happened. Also, some departments - particularly sales - are the typical "old boys network". Very conservative. Even in the worst heat of summertime, men are expected to wear long sleeve shirts and ties. In some ways felt like high school with all the "cliques" - just look at the cafeteria and how departments have lunch together and talk about other people.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on better managers and people development.
