    Pros

    Great company culture, strong teams, excellent opportunity to advance career. Tremendous brand equity, reputation for high ethical standards, overall top caliber Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    For some, the work environment can be overly competitive, though most thrive that enjoy the constant challenge to push and be pushed. Turnover a bit on the high side, though not bad for a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing profound to add here, the overall corporate culture, mission, quality policy, etc. have all been well developed over many decades of successful leadership.

    Pros

    Sales driven organization with a focus on hiring the best talent and allowing them to deliver. If they do, they can do very well.

    Cons

    High stress level chasing the numbers - monthly, quarterly, annually. Some operational issues that distract the sales team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive the culture. As challenging as the game is, hiring the best and brightest is the secret sauce.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good leadership, great products

    Cons

    Cutthroat, hostile work environment. You belong to the company. Will eat your young.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so unavailable from staff. Leadership isn't just directing from a golden throne. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

    Pros

    Great fast paced results oriented culture. Opportunity to work with great people in an organization that is customer and employee focused.

    Cons

    Transition from business units to matrix organization can sometimes be difficult. Systems and process improvements are necessary. IT investments will help talented employees accomplish even more.
