    Pros

    This is a solid company with great people and super products. It provides support for growth and rewards the employee based on results.

    Cons

    Being a very large company there are areas that might be slower to move and respond to market. This really depends on the part of the company you land.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more input from the lower level individual contributors who are the one to get the job done and really understand the market and the client needs. Validate across the board to maximize your ROI and ROA.
