Businesses this large have pros and cons

Account Executive (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsA wealth of resources at your fingertips. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company and get experience in multiple industries.

ConsThe systems and processes that have been prescribed for all 450,000 employees aren't always a good fit. Also, Lotus Notes.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more autonomy to individual business units, don't force everyone to use the same computers, software, or expense system. The "JAM" sessions seemed pretty worthless, or maybe we were not trained well enough to make use of them to where they are worthwhile to us on an individual level.

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