    stable well-paid employment
    flexibility around working hours, easy to combine with family life
    global working environment
    probably easier to navigate than other corporations, cons listed are simply part of working in a company of this size

    Cons

    little creativity allowed
    micro-management, tight control over processes
    hard to get promoted
    bureaucracy and general slowness
    the whole system of performance reviews promotes mediocrity and following procedures rather than innovation
    lots of talk, little action is a popular approach to work among employees (=lots of low performers that never get noticed)
