    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly, makes an effort to work as a team and help each other learn.

    Cons

    You can sometimes get lost in the organizational scheme of things being a part of a 20,000 employee company but you know that going in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    - growth by acquisition has led to diversity in management styles which are ultimately good for the business
    - if you excel at politics, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    - watch out for Steve Bennett and his outwardly friendly demeanor. He has made some questionable hires into his direct staff, and the veteran executives are scared to tell him the truth. There is an air of politics that has created a "yes-men" culture (yes! He fired all his female direct reports upon arrival!) which will not produce results in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    - Steve and team need to think about how they can show up as role models to a diverse employee base. Some employees see him as a father figure, but he needs to engender those that don't if he truly wants a diverse workforce.
