    Pros

    Competent and able workforce, strong work ethic, infinite resources available if management allows it, training programs are great learning opportunities

    Cons

    Feels like a government with the amount of bureaucracy...to many layers of managers and not enough "do-ers", no bonuses or "rewards" available to non executives, management has "ivory tower" mentality on a lot of issues

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting and realigning management and empower the people at the "bottom" who are making a real impact on the business

    Continuous learning environment. If you can deliver consistently, sky is the limit.

    Pros

    Working with some of the best and smartest people in the world. The companies size allows them to take risks on people and put them in "bigger" jobs than they'd find elsewhere. Daily challenges and learning opportunities. Great employee feedback process

    Cons

    Hours at times can be extreme Sink or swim environment Large company, comes with some bureaucracy Some leaders seem to have survived regardless of performance (Minimal and often the exception to the rule) Salary can be lower than individuals market value early in career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in new products and people. Technology is our key to winning.
