Pros

Work life Balance Large enough to move within the organization Some groups offer telecommuting Extensive Training opportunities

Cons

Hard to navigate because of size of organization Can get "lost" in the crowd Career Growth can be slow Very hard for "outsiders" applying to get a job, need to have an internal source to get a job

Advice to Management

Improve Communication Skills for employees telecommuting. Many resources have trouble navigating in a virtual work environment.

    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 Management

    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.
