    Pros

    Stability, Good culture, Employee caring,Benefits

    Cons

    Leadership focus on visibility, No advantage for long term employees, Getting promotion without internal job posting is a night mare. People can get away easily even after not performing. If you have good visibility and communication style then you can influence people and get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Focus on real achievement, Focus on Innovation, Take some tough calls
