Pros

TV at your desk. :) Volunteer opportunities. Great benefits. Lots of learning seminars, company-wide presentations. Easy to move around the company. Global opportunities for work.

Cons

It's hard to get in the door - you need to know someone. The company can be very top-down, but if you're willing to knock on doors to get your ideas heard, you can make a difference.

Advice to Management

Let your junior people lead once in a while!

    Pros

    The work environment provides many support systems. They have people below and above who take responsibility for team success. The training and available guidance and assistance is abundant. Growth is attainable through mentoring opportunities as well.

    Cons

    There are alot of layers and steps to be promoted. The process can be unclear because different people have different opinions on what it takes.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see a more clear process to move through the defined career path.
