Pros

The laid back environment, the individual autonomy, stability, family-orientedness, and working around such smart people. Lots of good friends, and an expectation that everyone will do their part.

Cons

Its a huge organization and things move slowly, so be prepared for a bit of corporate beauracracy. And, beause most employees are the cream of the crop, the company is slow to deal with the very few that aren't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the loss of talent due to salary.

    Pros

    A lot of smart and good, nice people. The company has a policy of working with people's strengths instead of forcing them into a mold or comparing to those considered "best." In my experience, the policy is actually implemented by management, and I tremendously value being appreciated for what I have to offer.

    Cons

    Well, does "measurements" give you goosebumps? If not, the company's mission may not be so exciting to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The strengths approach to employees is an enlightened approach to management -- and a winner for all. Keep emphasizing it.
