    Pros

    The pay is very competetive. There is little hand holding which encourages new emploiyees to learn and contiribute early on. Opportunity to work with management.

    Cons

    To much focus in hiring outside rather than promoting within. Environment can be somewhat stuffy and conceded. Opportunity to move to other business groups (if you are really great your group heads don't want to lose you and if you are weak you will be a bad representation of the former).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know who is good and keep them interested - invest in them. Don't hesitate to trim the fat and cut the non-performers.
