Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

Pros

* Good work life balance
* Truly global company with a diverse work force
* Reliable business that is well run
* Good corporate culture
* Good overall morale

Cons

* A little to focused only on cost cutting, need more focus on growth
* Culture in the HQ is a little more political than elsewhere in the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* Think about partnering with "best in class" instead of "who we do business with" all the time. The benefits of partnerships should be world class tools and delivering results
* We can be penny wise and pound foolish
* We need a more long term mindset around launching products
* Overall, this is a great place to work and I like it a lot. Thanks!

    Pros

    Very successful company with great benefits. Wonderful place to start your career. You get to work closely with some of the most successful companies in the world (Like Wal-Mart)

    Cons

    Very thick glass ceiling that can only be shattered by moving up the chain slowly. Seriously -it takes decades to advance there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have groomed a lot of great younger talent. Let them take over much sooner and guide the company to even higher heights.
