    Pros

    Pros

    Honestly, everything is average when compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Everything is run by HR. HR has little accountability and can do anything. Extremely PC. Some employees use HR as a weapon for revenge.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR report through the business units so there is some control and accountability.
