Pros

Work/ life flexibility Open door policy Little politics Fairness in performance reviews Friendly atmosphere International exposure Great possibilities for lateral movements Other than Workforce Reduction programs, job safety is high

Advice to Management

Find and fire the ones leaking strategic decisions to the press In the next reorgs, prioritize compulsory retirement programs over workforce reduction, lo open room for senior Individual Contributors to become fresh, high motivated managers Somehow increase uopwards mobility
