It's a job.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFor some people, the work is satisfying and challenging. The company has grown over time. It is a market leader in many areas. Tolerant of different cultures.

ConsCutbacks are severe when times are bad. Politics dictate who succeeds and who does not. If you are not on the fast track right away, and desire to move up, then it is time to move on.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice.
