    Pros

    Some very good and talented people. Who doesn't love sports? Good perks as well if you're in the right department.

    Cons

    Very slow to promote. Human Resources is a nightmare. A lot of red tape, although it's getting better with a new EVP they hired. But still have some of the old guard who just don't get it.

    Advice to Management

    The restructuring of titles was a complete joke and counter-productive. Be more open to creative solutions with your employees and not so stuck to an arbitrary policy manual.
