    Pros

    Working for a big company, I got to travel and learn new skills working with many different people. Employees were also provided training and required to study six sigma.

    Cons

    Working for a big company sometimes you felt like a number. The 360 review process was unfair to employees and sometimes cause animosity and competition among groups and teams, which created dysfunction.

    Advice to Management

    They should encourage team building and have better support from people in upper management for people in middle management or at the site level.

    Pros

    Stable company with a lot of choices for a next job type and location. Good work-life balance. Culturally very strong with safety and compliance. Huge company with huge resources - a chance to see complex processes, systems, and organizations work together.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are below what could be found at other companies in my field. A large company like this means that depending on the job and manager, you could get lost in the shuffle and miss an opportunity - new opportunities are dependent on who knows you (you are often sought for a specific job, instead of applying to a listing cold).

    Pros

    great people; very smart, highly self motivated & technical with deep expertise who are very professional; no small office gossip; office setting is low stress, no micromanagement

    Cons

    trying to keep tabs of who the company leaders/ executives are at the time... they seem to change annually; leadership seems out of touch with the foot soldiers sometimes

    Advice to Management

    don't let the pursuit of $ blind you into letting go of highly productive, good people.
