Pros

This is a stable company with a stable stock price and good benefits. Lots of opportunity for challenging work and global opportunities.

Cons

Very hierarchical. Ideas have to flow up through management channels and slow down innovation. There are many management perks like reserved parking and bonuses. There is also lots of favoritism for high potential employees. High potential employees tend to be non-diverse employees. They also bring in experienced hires but don’t like to listen to ideas from outside of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value all employees regardless of national origin, ethnicity, accents. Don’t jump to conclusions – assume employees are trustworthy and doing their best. Follow diversity initiatives with actions rather than just talk – and diversity of thought is great – but it doesn’t help unrepresented minorities feel welcome in the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you truly believe in the talent management concept then make sure you put all leaders under the same scrutiny. Some of them have slipped through the cracks of the "old boy" network and should not have achieved the levels they are currently in the company. It's an utter joke when some mentions we believe in talent management and implement it everyday.
