    Pros

    Large company, extensive resources, good name recognition

    Cons

    Managed in silos, too decentralized, little to none career progression opportunities with other divisions, unless you are Japanese and based in Tokyo.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for change, that is the only way the company will become fully relevant again.
