Pros

Large company, so there are many ongoing projects. People are largely very nice, and almost all are good at their jobs

Cons

Size means very few Internal project see actual production The few incompetent people are either in management or your boss. Very little future thinking, mostly how can we exploit the here and now

Advice to Management

Look forward, stop stagnating.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with smart technically savvy people. Employees are focus on providing the best value to the customer, and work towards that goal.

    Cons

    Stale middle management approach to leadership. Vision lacking at the higher levels, and very little entrepreneurial engagement with other potentially complimentary industries.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to get more involved with the rank and file employees. Spend some $$s on training, and reward employees who take risks.
