Top 3 professional experiences

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros- tons of opportunities for personal & professional development
- smart people
- interesting work
- autonomy
- flexibility (work from home very accepted)

Cons- inconsistent leadership across business units; some leaders don't communicate, others do
- risk aversion to telling people realities of change post-merger lead to many frustrated & disengaged associates

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open - give your very smart people the benefit of the doubt - deliver tough messages without sugar coating, those who don't accept it don't belong there in the long run.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
