    Pros

    1) Competent management has a clear plan to shift its product mix to highly profitable segments on an ongoing basis.
    2) There are more career development resources available to you than you'd likely find at any other private corporation.
    3) There is always a group of people somewhere that has similar interest / skills in your area of interest.

    Cons

    1) Experiences will vary widely depending on where your position is within the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our new CEO just announced a significant investment in employee skills. That is refreshing given a tumultuous time in the industry. The challenge will be in rolling this out to the field against the background of a performance driven culture. The devil is in the details of the implementation. Looking forward to hearing more about this.
