Great place to start your career. Tradeoffs - pay and extreme workload demands.

Pros

Personal growth and development. No shortage of opportunities to "stretch" yourself. The organization is so leanly staffed, that you get an opportunity to participate in everything.

Cons

It's a machine. Extremely short-term, financial focus. The work/life balance seem to only apply to select groups, for PR purposes. In reality, too much "life" focus will leave you behind, or out. Haven't seen less than 50 hrs/week in years. "pay at the 50% of market,"

Advice to Management

Reconsider a 4% "effect on payroll," per year. In the US, food and energy prices are up over 10% and 30% this year alone, respectively. Putting us way behind the marketplace.

    Pros

    Management training, clarity of performance measures linked to company goals, talent of fellow employees, clear performance measurement systems, great opportunities to move around the globe. Diversity of industries and businesses. Great processes in place for best practice sharing and learning between businesses. Lots of good mentoring possiblities. Company has alway had a strond focus on community service and the environment.

    Cons

    Lack of work life balance. Focus on performance can sometimes blind leaders to good people who have potential to be developed. If you do not start on one of the leadership programs you can be easily passed over for promotion, training and recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Is promotion really based on attitiude as well??
