Too Big, Slow to Make Decisions

Current Employee - Senior Program Manager
Current Employee - Senior Program Manager

Pros

The company has a lot of resources to get things done. You will gain many skills and work on interesting projects

Cons

Too many levels of managers to get buy-in, pre-approval and politics. Business functions managers only have their areas' goals in mind, rather than, working on delivering overall business values. Many people are only interested in carving out their piece of the pie. Not enough international assignment opportunities/rotational programs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take Bain's advice (work that was done 5 years ago) to consolidate the hierarchy levels. They attempted and simplified the levels, then in the last 2 years added to the hierarchy levels again. Going backwards is disappointing. Need a flatter organization where managers have the best interests of the company in mind and not personal empires.
