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 Management

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.

    Mgmt doesn't really care especially if you are in-sourced employee

    Advice to Management

    Folks you bring in May be able to help more than you give them credit for. Get them more involved for successful engagements.
