    Pros

    Big name to put on your resume, some interesting growth markets

    Cons

    it's a FaceTime, politics, appearance driven company. The talk about core values but at their core they care about what you say not what you do. accountability is low. People management capability is a beyond sad. Most of the businesses and products are established, no growth, no innovation spaces. It's a sad place to work

    Advice to Management

    You only want to hear the positive so I doubt you are reading this
