    Pros

    Good training and development. The company let's you take early responsibility as a marketer and you learn General Management principles early on.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive culture can lead to some surprises. The marketing track is extremely competitive and it's not always about your performance when it comes to getting promotion. Bottom line there's not enough spots for everyone so stay close to your headhunters. Get off to a fast start your first year or forget about getting to the next level. The best and brightest are at the company's choice so any blemishes can hurt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with your promotion practices; no need to keep us all in the dark. Also, invest in training your managers to actually manage and develop people. They're great at running business but not all are created equal when developing people. Very hit or miss at that can hurt you early.

    Pros

    Overall corporate concern with finding the best position within the company that matches employee skills. Salary and bonus levels very generous. Commitment to family is unmatched by other companies.

    Cons

    Ability to communicate senior leadership goals into workable, measureable objectives for mid-level management. Ability to recognize and reward efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on employee work-life balance. Maintain
