    Pros

    I joined as an A&T (admins&technicians) so my review is from that PoV.
    - Real responsibility from day 1
    - Great learning opportunities at all levels, at all assignments.
    - Smart people to work with
    - You can peak into lot of areas
    - Some outstanding low and mid managers both in people management skills and in business/technical knowledge

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is close to be non-existent
    - as an A&T, 'looking out of the box' is hard due to the workload in one concentrated area
    - starting salary below the regional average for the job, it gets better if you get your raises the way they promised (much dependent on your manager)
    - promotions depend too much on your immediate manager - so your salary path can become quite flat
    - there's a 'glass ceiling' between the managers and the A&Ts, getting promoted to manager level takes at least 5 years regardless of your talent or abilities, yet you can have a fresh graduate with zero experience and Supply Network knowledge presented as your next manager - or worse, you can get one from a completely different area with zero former experience/studies in the field of SN. SN managers are rarely promoted from within.
    - limited number of interesting A&T jobs to choose from for rotation
    - usually way understaffed, driving a tremendous number of overtime hours, uncompensated but required, which leads to big fluctuation

    Advice to Management

    Create real 'fast track' career path for A&Ts as well and help the selected ones grow.

    Pros

    Good salary, they take the employee career path in consideration, flexible hours and more important that all... They are willing to spend money in making you the best employee you can be!

    I became really close with my work group and keep contact with all of them even when I leave the company months ago. You can feel passion for the work you are doing, and even when making dippers and soap doesn't sound like the big deal, you will feel proud of working to the company

    Cons

    At 2012 the company isn't going in his best moment... low hiring rate and are reducing personal.

    Some people will get absorb by the work load and then will blame the company for WLB issues.
