    Pros

    Large company, good salary and benefits, a wide variety of work and opportunities available, getting to work with great professional colleagues

    Cons

    Frequent or constant change, lots of uncertainty on many levels, processes are often slow and bureaucratic which can be frustrating. Predominantly top down communication.

    Advice to Management

    Seems to be making some positive changes, needs better communication in some areas and some more attempts at continuity and stability
