Pros

Strong middle management. Business decisions are well thought out and design studies are based on fundamental engineering principles.
Managerial promotions are attainable if you put forth the effort.
Great job security as company is very stable.
Company encourages and supports internal transfers locally and globally.

Cons

The company desires to become more innovative but has difficulty changing the conservative culture. Real advancements in technology rarely make it past the prototype stage.
Little standardization of processes and lack of proper training.
Some policies and processes are outdated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be mindful that a high frequency of upper management turn over can lead to instability and a loss of core department values. To much cross pollination of department heads can also blur long term goals.
