    Pros

    Global company so issues and career opportunities across the world. Some really interesting issues. Good benefits including stock purchase, 401K and defined benefit pension plan.Quality of people in the company generally very high. Good people to work with and a culture of being pleasant, supportive. The "General Interest" is a real concept.

    Cons

    Lots of process, can be frustrating. HR generally unhelpful -- they will e-mail you a paragraph from the policy manual instead of giving a personalized answer to your question.

    Advice to Management

    Rate HR according to employee satisfaction and feedback.
