Pros

- Fantastic training and development program.
- Fast paced culture and fun envionrment at HQ

Cons

- Insane "feedback overload" culture. People take it to extremes and it can become all-consuming.
- Everyone is also obsessed with "timing" of promotions and is in a constant race to move on to the next position.
- Many layers and approvals needed to get anything done

Advice to Management

Be weary of burning people out. There is such a thing as a "strong contributor" and not everyone is either high potential or a poor performer. Find value in those who are contributing consistently and work to reward them as much as the high flying corporate ladder climbers.
