    Pros

    Excellent benefits and opportunities for professional development and career progression. There are always jobs advertised internally that offer progression or sideways moves. The benefits are significantly better than other companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Communication is hit and miss. Because the company is so huge, achieving consistent and regular communication with employees is difficult. As a result, not everyone identifies with the company's vision and objectives as much as they could. Collaboration across departmetns within a business unit is difficult; collaboration across business units is almost unheard of.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and give them permission to use their judgement, even if it means they bend the rules. Staff need to know that not only is it OK but it's actually impertaive that we try new ways of doing things. Embracing change is not easy for many people. Management can lay the groundwork in such a way that actively welcoming or even initiating change is the status quo, by making sure that people know that risk taking is allowed.
