Pros

Work/life balance
Salary
Benefits
Lots of really smart, motivated people
Some work can be great, some mind-numbing
There are some great divisions to work with, and some awful ones. The good ones are great, and the awful ones are petty, political, and focused on keeping leadership happy instead of focusing on their work or the customer.

Cons

Politics
Too big to move quickly
Very hard to implement change
Too many excuses ("Legal won't let us" "we've always done it this way")

Advice to Management

Listen to your 2-downs. They have management's perspective as well as Team Member's perspective. They see and hear things you don't, and have the customer's experience in mind, not the bottom line.

    Pros

    Diverse backgrounds of colleagues. Strong management team. Very good initial training. Great resources/products.

    Cons

    It's a very tough industry to get started from the ground. Quite honestly I have all of the tools I need to be successful and I should be doing better than I am. Any trainee getting started had better have a good network and one hell of a business plan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on top of the trainees.

    Pros

    Vacation time, tenure matters, great managers..

    Cons

    Bad managers, lack of communication regarding performance or opportunities, lack of movement due to people not retiring, business units compete with one another

    Advice to Management

    Stop discouraging internal candidates from moving upwards....internal HR protocol is designed to eliminate current employees from receiving stretch assignments.
