Pros

Enjoy the people I work with.

Cons

Pay is below market value. Benefits that used to be above market (which made up for the pay) are now at market are below.
Moving more and more of the company out of the US to "cheaper" locations.

Advice to Management

Start treating your employees like they are the valuable commodity you say they are.

    Pros

    It's a global company with a trusted, 160 year old brand which commands a lot of attention. There are terrific people who work very hard everyday and it is a fabulous way to work with people of every nation, race and creed. There is a sense of teamwork.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is like a dinosaur. Focus is only on the core business which has been in decline, so company is in denial and won't take risks to escape into a new horizon. It takes forever to launch new products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bowing to the monitor or we will never bounce back. Embrace new products with serious funding. Scrap the IT and start over--it is the weakest link!

    Pros

    Stable job with good benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions and recognition are awarded based on personal interests, rather than on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct GENUINE 360 degree reviews to recognize and retain talent.
