Work-life integration challenges

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsStrong company strategy and a real chance to succeed in the market. Lots of tools and IP available. Flexible benefits. Good company culture. Global reach.

ConsComplex processes. Company is very good in squeezing the most out of its employees making work-life integration (I guess they gave up on the term "balance") a challenge. You need a strong sponsor to move up as the complex matrix structure provides potentially too many stakeholders to roles. Negotiate for the highest salary possible when you come in as good incremental increases and promotions will be difficult to come by. Many jobs being shipped overseas.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more parity between outside hires who get the incumbent employees. Better career development and compensation needed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
