    Pros

    1.Big blue chip company with many global opportunities to move a progress your career across the world.

    2. Looks good on your CV.

    3. Relatively stable company in a difficult industry.

    4. Friendly staff.

    5. Good staff training.

    6. Nice office facilities.

    Cons

    1. Greater and greater emphasis on centralized processes that lead to edicts from the "Leadership".

    2.The point above leads to managers implementing local solutions but framing results to look like they are the great ideas the "Leadership" has been so kind to share and insist we implement.

    3. Old ideas are re-badged as new. New bosses never ask if an idea has been tried before. They just assume they have best ideas.

    4. "Leadership" that asks for feed back but does not act on it and sidelines personnel who give feedback that does not toe the party line.

    5. After a staff survey showed they were heading in the wrong direction for staff satisfaction 3 years ago, latest survey shows they have scored even lower for the same issues raised 3 years ago.

    6. Are perceived as arrogant by customers and competitors.

    7. They pay less than their competitors

    Advice to Management

    1. You are good at developing talent but you keep losing your best people because you do not respect them and you frustrate them till they have no option but to leave.

    2. Your pay is crap. Staff stopped believing in your "industry compensation benchmarks" ages ago. You do not pay as well as your "real" competitors, period. You demand results in the 95th percentile so your pay should reflect that.

    3. 7-8 years of sustained growth did not come about by accident. Start to respect the staff you have.

    4. It is not a good sign when staff are so indifferent they tell you the "Leadership", face to face that you are doing ok, yet your own survey shows you are sliding further back! It shows your staff are tired of giving feedback that is not acted on.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and bonuses. Can be fun loving(office only). Good welfare for shift workers. Good chance for internal transfer and promotion (depends on connection).

    Cons

    red tapes. Too much differences across department. People lack of positive working attitude. Multiple standards.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down red tapes. Cut down unnecessary non-value generating workload.
