Pros

Good fun work and interesting projects. The company culture encourages bringing good ideas and plans on how to meet business objectives to your work. If your ideas are approved, they become new projects for you to lead. In essence, you can use your creativity to generate the kind of work you would like to do at the company.

Cons

Too many politics and too many bureaucratic layers

Advice to Management

Read the article in Vanity Fair and believe this is really the true experience of many FTEs.
