    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.
