    You can get away with anything if you play the political game correctly, because no one is accountable for anything.

    No one is accountable for anything. So if you care about doing your job well then you don't fit in here.

    Serious cultural issues and political dynamics up and down the ranks in all corners of the company.

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable pay. Many long term employees who are dedicated and care. Job security is very high.

    Cons

    Pretty conservative culture. Not very aggressive about handling poor performers - which means better performer pick up slack. Annual increases don't truly reflect merit, etc. so higher performers often get the short stick. Of course this is off set in large part by the job security.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentives both financially and otherwise for higher performers.

    Pros

    Excellent facility to work in. In house bistro was excellent. The millennial group was fantastic to work with. Too many helper bees with fictional titles

    Cons

    Lots. Like all large corporations they have their problems, but who doesn't? A lot of arrogant people who prefer to manage by intimidation and fear.

    Advice to Management

    Let the millennial's assume the reins!

    I think the benefits and perks are very fair and that the employees are treated well and respected.

    Cons

    It's still has a corporate feel to the office, so there are some rules and regulations that will just never go away - dress code, working remotely, etc.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility in scheduling, work location, dress code.
