    Pros

    Freedom to innovate. No micro-management. Very good work-life balance. At the end of the day, it all depends on the manager you work for.

    Cons

    Very hard to influence any decision making at any level. A lot of processes in place which is understandable for such a large company. However, they slowdown your work.A lot of time is spent adhering to policies OR following training on policies.
    There is system for every little thing that you need to do and it takes time to learn who to contact for what and then the time to actually get the task done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has been run very well and is now in great hands. If possible, it would be nice to see reduction in processes and administrative ovehead.
