    Pros

    You'll work for a global company with many hard-working people. The benefits are very good and the work life balance is reasonable

    Cons

    The company is still heavily invested in previous ways of business. Much of the work is top down and developers are not involved in product development.

    Advice to Management

    Let developers solve the problems that the business owners have. Don't let the solutions be prescribed for development.

    Pros

    Very good Company for working for. Work you hard but have family values at heart and are accommodating.

    Cons

    Company is so large that moving up is a battle. Few % of employees make level 8 in their lifetime.

    Advice to Management

    Keep product in mind above all else, including process. Don't mocromanage.

    Pros

    Great finance rotation program, fast-track program, premier "MBA shop"

    Cons

    Company devaluing TO prominence, "analysis paralysis" mentality

    Advice to Management

    Move program back to NY -- key attraction feature of program. Prevent stagnation both in terms of rotation opportunities as well as career progression. Keep program attractive for MBA's and do not dilute. Compensation needs to be competitive!
