    Pros

    Being a global company has some great perks, none greater than deep pockets. Even though North America has been hemorrhaging, emerging markets have kept the company going.

    Cons

    There are no growth opportunities unless you are willing to check in your integrity at the door. Performance uses forced rankings and HR in its infinite wisdom decided that a team of 10 can only have 2 good performers so regardless of actual accomplishments, they are rated low. Promotions, bonuses and raises are based on rating, which is good in theory but in this case just goes to brown nosers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really have to stop chasing Jack Welch's theories from the 90s and wake up to the new reality. Most of your talented employees, especially Gen Xs and Ys have walked and as the economy improves the rest will too.
