very process-oriented and hierarchical - little space for intrapreneurship

Pros

great work-life balance & flextime
great colleagues
ambitious firm-- focuses on exciting growth areas and apparently willing to invest in those businesses
CEO is energetic and candid
global presence

Cons

heavy on the paperwork to get any training, travel or expenses approved- it needs to go up 3 or 4 levels of management!
not a lot of space for people with a good idea to 'run with it'-- everything needs to be pre-approved and scrutinized, meaning the company isn't exactly nimble and can't support thought leadership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

develop a real HR strategy and some form of talent management. eventually, staff with some ambition will get tired of being process monkeys and will look for work where initiative and a focus on personal development are rewarded.

    Pros

    They pay very well. Many people do not have enough to do. Benefit policies are good. It is a company that makes money.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Too many generals. Prefer to throw people at a need rather than technology which leads to too many opinions and analysis paralysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve technology. Stop micro managing. Trust your employees. Get rid of deadwood as there is a lot of it. Keep improving products.

    Pros

    Name Recognition
    Big Footprint
    The work is sometimes interesting, challenging, and engaging.
    Lower level staff is intelligent, generous, and kind.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional atmosphere.
    Leadership unstable, secretive, and tends to say one thing and do another.
    Constantly shifting priorities make career success difficult... have to be in the right place at the right time to advance rather than be great at your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Name recognition will only get you so far; diluting the value of our products through cost-cutting and outsourcing will ultimately cost us customers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
