    Pros

    Opportunity to work on different/unique products and challenges without having to switch companies

    Cons

    Lack of investment in growing and retaining talent and lack of development in truly managing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revert back to the 1999 review model as it rewarded and retained talent better than the 2 prior models.
