    Pros

    I love the company, it offers lots of opportunities to develop your professional career and it operates in an exciting market.

    Cons

    Internal fragmentation and lack of global vision prevents the company from reaching its full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long term rather than the next financial quarter, end internal fragmentation, and make business units not only responsible but accountable.

    Pros

    Great environment and benefits, people are nice, ability to work remotely with flexibility around working hours, recognisable brand for recruitment purposes

    Cons

    Like any big company, quite a bit of politicking, projects or certain processes being completed, just to say they have been completed without adding any real value, no open forum to voice concerns on where the company is going, no sense of unity, any kind of strategic input is diluted

    Advice to Management

    Create environments where employees are able to speak more freely on how the company can improve so it can be fed back to the top, not just surveys, but open communication tools/forums where people can collaborate and bring about a disruptive environment to make the product better
