    Pros

    Large company typically meaning there is 'some' work available. Good benefits, flexible time. Good emphasis on ethics, safety.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost and there are fewer and fewer higher positions. Managers make up majority of your work experience (mine is great, but can be so-so). Things happen slowly due to all the processes, and the regular employees have little say once something has been mandated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking forward - the companies big coffers could spur great innovation (and profits) for 20 years to come, not just next quarters stock prices.
