    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to work on consistency. I worked in several different business units and the culture and application of standards were quite different. The company is very cliquey and some of the groups are very resistant to change. Pick a strategy and stick with it for more than a year. You waste too much money paying consultants without any real oversight.

    Pros

    good pay, great benefits, diversify cultures, free gym, (some) fun coworkers

    Cons

    too much to put in here. You name it: politics, games, betrayal, side taking, sleep their way up, manager is just someone who monitors what time you come in and go home and propose your position to be eliminated. Sucks environment. No job secure whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no advice because these people don't care. Also, HR is useless. You can't trust anyone there but yourself!
