    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn in a global company. Good opportunities for global assignments. A lot of M&A activity so if you are interested in getting involved in that area it could be a great fit.

    Cons

    A lot of cut backs in the labor force based in the US. Fewer entry level positions so harder to get in and if you do not move up quickly it can lead to a dead end. Cutting back on employee benefits so again important to move up to keep your compensation in line with market/personal demands. Minimal bonuses at the lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    While labor arbitrage is part of competing on the global level smarter systems that require fewer highly trained people ultimately is a wise investment in the back office work like Finance/Accounting. Simply off-shoring work does not solve system limitations.


  2. Too focused on EPS goal

    Pros

    Was a terrific 36 year career which offered me incredible opportunity for a guy from the poor side of town who worked his way through college.

    Cons

    Politics has gone beyond belief,matrix management is a failure... those who get the best accounts are those closest to their remote managers ... those in other states are ignored and allowed to atrophy.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the EPS goal, confess that it was not realistic, take the near term hit, preserve your skills, focus on employee development, re instill respect for the individual. You are about to lose the most valuable asset you have.
