Pros

Great people (especially long time employees and new college hires). Good large corporation benefits.

Cons

Not much news here, disfunctional and mediocre Board of Directors, averaage senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the overhead & management fat. Eliminate &/or reduce the Business Groups & Units stovepipes. Allocate more resources to innovation and customer facing resources.

    Pros

    Big name and a big brand are nice. Easy to explain who your employer is at social gatherings.

    Cons

    You're one of about 350,000 and that becomes pretty evident. There is a lot of red tape to do anything outside the box. A lot of products rushed to market. Work/Life balance is what you make of it - but it's easy to be swept away into an always on lifestyle.
