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 Management

* 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 Management

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

  2. Not Perfect, But Hands Down One of the Best Fortune 500 Companies Remaining
