    Pros

    Not homogenous, you can get a variety of experience in different parts of Corporate Finance/Accounting
    Pay is decent relative to competitors in the area*
    Travel and other opportunities for exposure with the right connections within the organization
    Flexible work arrangements

    Cons

    *Pay is below the national average for the role
    Outsourcing higher level finance functions (India), creates concerns for growth and job security
    You're only as good as your manager, the performance structure forces people to compete against peers
    You have to seek out development opportunities, management doesnt seem as vested,
    The "right connections" is a slippery slope. You have to network to survive, but if it doesn't work out your career will stall
    People will do stuff the way it was always done without thinking outside the box or questioning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your employees to maintain quality in this global environment. Revamp the whole performance review/bonus structure.
