    Pros

    Large organization with extensive reach to numerous clients. Competitive pay for results achieved. Multiple lines of business providing opportunities to service clients and find opportunities within the organization.

    It's a large organization. Like any large business, at times the left hand isn't aware what the right hand is doing leading to groups working at cross purposes.

    Focus on businesses and employees creating long term relationships rather than focusing on short term financial results.
