Pros

Compensation and work-life balance is among the best (except for peak seasons, which is normal in the financial and retail industries). Future vision and change strategy in place is great and if executed correctly, will be an even better place to work.

Cons

Excessive management layers and bureaucracies. No true channel for bottoms-up communication. Observing and learning from successful companies (e.g. Google, Apple, Walmart) and avoiding pitfalls from companies that failed (Kodak, Polaroid, American Automobile Manufacturers) is almost non-existent because of too much pride and ego in the excessive senior management layers. Really score in writing TPS reports and justifications.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walk the talk. The vision and strategy in place is great. Execute and pay attention to people who does the real work in the company.

    Pros

    Great learning ground; Terrific amount of exposure to clients globally; Strong work life balance; Generally a nice group of employees.

    Cons

    Filled with top-heavy management whose day has come and gone -- they are waiting for stock to vest and retire... but why retire when you are paid well and work near your home?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refresh your SBL/Group Head levels.
