    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to learn new skills and challenge yourself. There are also a lot of smart people to learn from and coworkers are generally very generous with knowledge. Risk taking & outside of the box thinking are both valued & encouraged, but admittedly only so much. If you are unhappy with you're job or simply looking for a new challenge, there are always plenty of jobs around the country & world to transfer to. Infact you are encouraged to change jobs every 3 to 5 years. Pay is above average for lower end jobs (mail room, manufacturing assemblers, building maintenance, etc) as well as for higher end jobs (principal engineers, business unit managers, etc). For those of us in the middle, the pay is average or sometimes below average.

    Cons

    The two biggest cons are; 1) constant threat of layoffs due to structure & efficiency gains, 2) middle management is clueless. I worked in one team for 8 years, during that time we had; 4 restructurings, split 2 times, merged 2 times...all those lead to 5 rounds of layoffs. The constant change in the charter of the group, type of work, and threat of losing your job is not good for moral. Add to that the fact middle management is there because they are not quslified to do the work, but they are the one doing your yealy review. it makes it very difficult to get promotions.

    Advice to Management

    None, management doesn't listen to any of the internal feedback tools so they definately won't be listening to this.
