Pros

Global firm with many interesting business challenges. Good industry safety record. Some very profitable business streams.

Cons

Failure to provide direction under new CEO. Launch of "Simplification" project has led to assumption that this means downsizing and redundancies due to failure to provide meaningful and timely project updates.
Sale of one division means likely downsizing of centrally funded functions but again the failure to provide timely and clear communication is leading at present to a "brain drain" as valued employees vote with their feet.
There seems to be a glass ceiling for women and for those outside of the USA. Too many decisions are decided in north America and implemented elsewhere in the world with little consideration or regard for culture or local business practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect your employees by trusting them with better and more regular communication rather than adopting "ivory tower" leadership style from the US corporate headquarters.
