    Pros

    - Expectations of your work and responsibilities are very clear from the very beginning.
    - Managers trust and respect your abilities but expect high quality work of you. They do not micro manage and total independence is given for you to complete the assigned tasks.
    - Work life balance is promised and well delivered. Female employees, especially working mothers are given the flexibility to job share, flexible working hours, as well as optional day-off during the week (for example, work 10 hours from Monday to Thursday and take Friday off). Also, they are given the options to work from home, which is a bonus!

    Cons

    - The company's always changing (mergers and acquistion), so job security is a question here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent!

    Riskier (visionary) approaches seem neglected; will key R&D talent flee?

    Pros

    Much technical expertise, opportunities to learn and grow, resources (albeit not necessarily enough $ to fund adequately all projects), great benefits.

    Cons

    Even though science and innovation are desired, decisions from some senior managers do not appear to be sufficiently science-driven; despite the recent reorganization in smaller business units, scale and complexity remain to be harnessed towards better productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The safer & more precedented & predictable approaches cannot be managed the same way than those that are riskier but with higher potential. Current management decisions seem to be removing the incentives to pursue the latter. Brightest R&D talent is looking for opportunities elsewhere.
