    Pros

    Not too many hours, work with good people, challenging work, awesome benefits, opportunities for international assignments but they can be tough to get.

    Cons

    You don't have much control over your career path or input on what aligns with your interest, dependent on where the company needs you. But overall, nothing too bad.

    Pros

    Very flexible with working from home or remotely, amazing benefits, working with smart people, and the company spends a lot of time and money to develop you.

    Cons

    Work is often siloed off to small areas, you don't get a say where you end up in the organization unless you can gain favor with the group you like and have them pull you over you may end up doing something you hate.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of utilizing peoples skills sets and placing them in positions that they have some desire or passion for.

    Pros

    Good retirement benefits with both a pensions and 401k. You are rotated very frequently so you don't stay in one position for years on end. You'll work with very smart people.

    Cons

    No open job postings so you never know what's available. With the size of the company, it can seem like things move very slowly. The company culture is on the conservative side.

    Advice to Management

    You're always told that you have a say in your career path but sometimes it doesn't feel that way. The forced ranking system is also outdated and needs to be eliminated.
