    Pros

    XL treats employees as professionals and has good policies for remote working, travel, and time off XL pays well and has very good benefits (for example: 140% 401k match up to 5%, uncapped, in the US) XL has great collaboration and communication tools. XL is global, so you have a good range of people to work with XL is dynamic, so getting stuck only doing 1 thing is a choice mostly XL treats their people to events such as an annual XMas party, a Glboal Day of Giving (socially responsible), and in some locations, a summer party.

    Cons

    Common management theme: "How cheap can you get the work done, and I need it done yesterday" Lacking clearly defined roles & responsibilities Want big things on small budgets

    Advice to Management

    You can't buy a Mercedes on a Honda budget - be reasonable with expectations Get better at quantifying and tracking capital investment returns. There is reasonably good rigor that goes into project definition, but when benefit assumptions do not hold true, hold managers accountable - do not whip people to work harder to make your number slook good
