    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule works really well for people with young families. Good compensation, excellent benefits. Best of both worlds--European approach to employment (job relatively secure), American approach to being an employee (less structure).

    Cons

    Excessive politics and way too many turf wars. Probably inevitable for a large company, but still hampers productivity and can be demotivating. Strategic direction changes every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your CEOs for more than a few years. Establish a vision and a strategy and stick to it for the long haul. Remove processes (and don't remove them through a process).

    Pros

    Good work life balance, competitive pay; very pleased with company embracing virtual and remote employees.

    Cons

    Little advancement for women; very few women in leadership and management positions
    Allow poor mangement to remain and even promote them

    Advice to Management

    Need to take employee feedback from Employee Sat survey and begin to either train or discipline poor managers or put them on a Performance Plan and dismiss them.
