Pros

Some interesting work, benefits are good.

Cons

Company doesn't practice what they preach. Despite their stated "organic growth" the company grows through acquisition which doesn't go so well. Regional leaders and office managers have no clue about their own employees and spend most of their time working on org charts to justify their existence. The corporate management seems to be on a different planet and don't communicate anything to the staff. This company is struggling to identify itself amongst many other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a closer look at regional and office managers and make sure that you ask them why they are constantly shuffling the deck and making arbitrary decisions about staffing.

    Pros

    Ethical people with a high level of pride in their work. Fast-paced and still innovative despite having 4500 employees. Making a difference in the world. Good access to experts within the company.

    Cons

    Not too much opportunity to relocate internationally but getting there with some new offices. Need to tell the stories of the staff more often so people who are new realise the community they are part of- the size means it's pssible to be siloed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the halls and talk to the more junior staff more often.
