    Pros

    Pay is better than average. If you can get a severance package take it. Some people are nice. Technology and products make a difference.

    Cons

    * Market dominance across many sectors means that if you're lazy or under perform; nothing happens.
    * Culture has a lot of back stabbing and side-room deals.
    * Company claims innovation, but its competency and main concerns are in managing legacy businesses.
    * Lack of overall best practices.
    * Little credence given to true business acumen; scientists think they are business people and can "pick it up", R&D likes to play product management and make commercial decisions
    * Lots of organization churn and endless debate over things that make no material sense for the business or customer.
    * Leadership claims they are looking for innovation, but punishes failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let product management do their job and own the product. Let R&D develop and deliver the product, not make product or commercial decisions.
