    Pros

    Good people to work with. Lots of positive people willing to contribute and make a difference. A great breadth and depth of skills within the organization

    Cons

    Alignment of work is a big issue. Lots of times you may be working on something only to find out that someone at another location is working on the exact same thing. This can be frustrating when the organization is misaligned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the work aligned and speed up the rate of change. People on the front line are ready for the change but management is dragging it out.

    Pros

    It's a safe and stable environment to develop yourself. There is hardly any office politics going on because the culture is all about inclusivity and equality. Mistakes are usually viewed as opportunities for improvement.

    Cons

    Projects always take longer than expected to finish because at least one important player in the delivery of the work is on vacation at any given time, due to the generous vacation benefits given to employees, especially for those who have stuck around a pretty long time.

    I also end up worrying about being recognized for my efforts. Some colleagues put in the minimal time and leave. I sometimes stay late to do extra work. However I feel as if we are all still treated the same by management. It disincentives putting one's nose to the grindstone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers always declare they are open to change, yet not all ideas seem to be welcome. Make the criteria clear so you don't appear hypocritical.
